The 12-Step Controversy

I picked up my tools for recovery in various 12-Step fellowships, which are admittedly very controversial. I was reading in “Psychology Today” an article addressing this controversy. Here’s the link:

I honestly think that I could have picked up some of these life lessons anywhere. Al-Anon doesn’t have a lock on teaching gratitude and acceptance. The 12-Step fellowships just happen to be where I gained some tools to change my attitude and try to live better, which is why I’m happy to be a member. But this is an interesting article, and explains why many people still shy away from 12-Step programs.

“Whatever works for you”— that’s my motto
