Orientation Needs to Be Given


A newcomer in recovery needs a simple explanation of the fellowship he or she has chosen to enter. Call it "orientation." Call it "beginner's facts." Or call it "a beginner's meeting."

The article following this orientation on "old-school" A.A. origins will present beginning facts for an A.A. newcomer explaining the "new" 1939 Twelve Step program which Bill W. wrote and then published in 1939.
