During these sessions, you will learn how to recover from alcoholism by taking the Twelve Steps as outlined in the book “Alcoholics Anonymous”. The Program of AA is a spiritually based plan of action that will remove the compulsion to drink and enable you to live a happy, useful, and whole life. AA instructional meetings are said to have been started in Cleveland, Ohio by Clarence S. in the early 1940’s. After the publication of the “Saturday Evening Post” article about Alcoholics Anonymous, AA started growing so rapidly it became impossible for the early members to individually take new prospects through the Steps. These meetings were held for the purpose of acquainting both the old and new members with the 12 steps upon which our program is based. So that all twelve steps could be covered in a minimum amount of time, they were divided into four classifications, and one meeting each week was devoted to each of the four subdivisions. Each group has developed its own guidelines for teaching the “Beginners’ Classes.” However, all these groups have something in common. They provide a safe, structured environment in which newcomers learn the principles of AA, take the Steps, and have spiritual experiences.
