9 But Step Limitation! It only provides... SINGLE issue recovery
10 So... a faith-based 12-Step Program? Yes, it is and it always was!
11 The 12-Steps These are the original Twelve Steps as published by Alcoholics Anonymous: 1.We admitted we were powerless over alcohol that our lives had become unmanageable. 2.Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. 3.Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. 4.Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. 5.Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. 6.Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
12 The 12-Steps 7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. 8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. 9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. 10. Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. 11. 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. 12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
13 ... It always was A study found a robust association between an increase in attendance to AA meetings with increased spirituality and a decrease in the frequency and intensity of alcohol use over time. The research also found that AA was effective for agnostics and atheists. The authors concluded that though spirituality is an important mechanism of behavioral change for alcoholics, it is not the only means used.
14 According to AA The AA Big Book states "we are told that alcoholism is an illness which only a spiritual experience will conquer.
15 According to AA "We never apologize to anyone for depending upon our Creator. We can laugh at those who think spirituality the way of weakness. Paradoxically, it is the way of strength. The verdict of the ages is that faith means courage. All men of faith have courage. They trust their God. We never apologize for God. Instead we let Him demonstrate, through us, what He can do. We ask Him to remove our fear and direct our attention to what He would have us be. At once, we commence to outgrow fear." ~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, How It Works, pg. 68~
16 According to AA The scope of AA's program is much broader than just abstinence from drinking alcohol.  Its goal is to effect enough change in the alcoholic's thinking "to bring about recovery from alcoholism"  through a spiritual awakening.

24 The Serenity Prayer God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; Taking as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it, Trusting that You will make all things right if I surrender to Your will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen. - Reinhold Niebuhr
