On this program, we discuss a summary of the first six steps in a Step 12 program. The 12 step program is a critical part of almost all addiction recovery treament programs.
The 12-Step Program
Please review each step and try to either begin following them yourself or enroll in a local program. Let’s take a look at the steps. You will see quickly that the process includes others and that we are not meant to go through this alone. These 12-Steps were written for alcoholics. When you see alcohol, insert your drug of choice.
Step One: We admitted that we were powerless over alcohol--that our lives had become unmanageable.
Step Two: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
Step Three: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understand Him.
Step Four: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Step Five: Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Step Six: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character
One this program we review each of these steps and why you do them to move past your addiction.
Step 11 of the 12 steps for addiction recovery:
"Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out."
Many believe that a complete spiritual transformation is required to end drug and alcohol addiction, Step 11 is a very critical and often over looked element of this transformation. Improving our relationship with our higher power can deliver us from addiction and give us the joyous and free life that we all are seeking.

There is getting to be a lot of BUZZ about yoga and recovery, yet does it really work? AND WHY??
Every Monday I teach yoga as a volunteer at a men's rehabilitation facitlity in Shelton Washington. To quote a wonderful author " they came to scoff, remained to pray". Each man has become profoundly empowered and changed by the work.
I will be sharing how you can put more yoga into your recovery, and how yoga will strengthen your resolve to stay sober with joy and peace.

A new month brings a new step. Step 11 to Freedom is Passion. Passion towards yourself, the life you're living, and the choices you're making. We will discuss self-expression, the value in your desires, and courting Risk. Learning how to express yourself is nessasary to living your freedom. Expressing your truth, creating it and claiming it as your own. There is great value in knowing what you want, once you know you will start to bring it forth. Courting Risk, getting to know it, will bring you confidence stepping out and taking more risks. As you practice this you will get passionate about your life and won't let fear keep you from your dreams any longer.
Step 7 of the 12 steps is:
Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
Step 7 is a transformational process that allows us to ask God to help us to begin to remove our shortcomings that we have spent the previous six steps identifying.
Joe Herzanek continues his discussion of the 12 steps and describes how to approach Step 7 and to continue on the road to addiction recovery.

Addiction often is found alongside stories of abuse. Addicts more easily become abusers and the abused often lean into various forms of addiction in the attempt to help manage their pain. Many people have found help in the many versions of the 12 Step programs. Great wisdom is found within the 12 Steps, but not all programs, not all groups, not all individuals are equally helped. Learn what makes for a sucessful time in group and individual work through the Steps.
