Most of what we hear about recovery is from AA. I love AA and Alanon. They have come across some universal truths.
I have seen many people recover using their principals. I have also seen more than a few people recover or at least stop using drugs/alcohol without joining up. Interestingly, these people are using many of the 12 steps anyhow.
I have great respect and well wishes for all the addicts in recovery no matter how they got to their recovery.
God Bless all of us who still suffer.
