12 steps
12 Steps Online Workbook
This site helps you have a creative dialogue with the Twelve Steps. That is, examine what the 12 steps have to say, but also put a lot of yourself in the process.  This 12 steps workbook is especially geared to people who are struggling with co-dependency and co-dependent relationships.
Image of yacht "SERENITY" A Serenity Place
A Serenity Place is a closed online Al-Anon meeting. We meet twenty-hours a day, seven days a week. The meeting format at A Serenity Place is a daily meeting; a new meeting every day of the week. Each day of the week is chaired by a different member. Some days of the week are structured topics; for instance on Mondays the meeting is on the Twelve Steps. Some days are Open Topic--the chair will announce the topic that day.  We consider ourselves an Al-Anon group in every sense of the word; we follow the Twelve Traditions of Al-Anon and conduct business like any other group. Our communication with the greater fellowship of Al-Anon Family Groups is through our Meeting Contact, our trusted servant who handles liaison with the World Service Office. This meeting pays particular attention to the "Obstacles to Success" also known as the "Practical Application of the Twelve Traditions."
ACA WSO Logo Adult Children of Alcoholics
Adult Children of Alcoholics is a Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition program of women and men who grew up in alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional homes. We meet with each other in a mutually respectful, safe environment and acknowledge our common experiences. We discover how childhood affected us in the past and influences us in the present ("The Problem"). We take positive action. By practicing the Twelve Steps, focusing on "The Solution", and accepting a loving Higher Power of our understanding, we find freedom from the past and a way to improve our lives today.
For over 50 years, Al-Anon (which includes Alateen for younger members) has been offering hope and help to families and friends of alcoholics. It is estimated that each alcoholic affects the lives of at least four other people... alcoholism is truly a family disease. No matter what relationship you have with an alcoholic, whether they are still drinking or not, all who have been affected by someone else’s drinking can find solutions that lead to serenity in the Al-Anon/Alateen fellowship.
Awakenings is an email Al-Anon Meeting focusing on Steps 3 and 11 and the spiritual journey of recovering from the effects of living with or having lived with a person with a drinking problem -- their families and friends.
Co-Anon Family Groups
Co-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of men and women who are husbands, wives, parents, relatives, or close friends of someone who is chemically dependent. If you are seeking a solution to the problems that come from living with a practicing or recovering cocaine addict, we at Co-Anon can help you.  We are relatives and friends who share a common bond: we feel our lives have been deeply affected by another person's drug abuse. We meet regularly to share our experience, strength and hope. By practicing the 12 Steps of recovery ourselves, we learn to cope with our difficulties and find a more serene approach to life.

Codependents Anonymous (CODA)
A program of recovery from codependence, where each of us may share our experience, strength, and hope in our efforts to find freedom where there has been bondage and peace where there has been turmoil in our relationships with others and ourselves.  Most of us have been searching for ways to overcome the dilemmas of the conflicts in our relationships and our childhoods. Many of us were raised in families where addictions existed - some of us were not. In either case, we have found in each of our lives that codependence is a most deeply rooted compulsive behavior and that it is born out of our sometimes moderately, sometimes extremely dysfunctional family systems. We have each experienced in our own ways the painful trauma of the emptiness of our childhood and relationships throughout our lives.  We attempted to use others - our mates, friends, and even our children, as our sole source of identity, value and well being, and as a way of trying to restore within us the emotional losses from our childhoods. Our histories may include other powerful addictions which at times we have used to cope with our codependence.

Click here to enter the COSA Web site COSA
COSA is a recovery program for men and women whose lives have been affected by compulsive sexual behavior. In COSA, we find hope whether or not there is a sexually addicted person currently in our lives. With the humble act of reaching out, we begin the process of recovery.   The COSA recovery program has been adapted from the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon. It is a program for our spiritual development, no matter what our religious beliefs. As we meet to share our experience, strength and hope while working the twelve steps, we grow stronger in spirit. We begin to lead our lives more serenely and in deeper fulfillment, little by little, one day at a time. Only in this way can we be of help to others.
CyberSerenity [CAFG]
An Online Al-Anon Email and Chat Meeting.  CyberSerenity [CAFG] began in March 1995 and grew to about 700 members by September 1996. On June 18, 1996 - CyberSerenity [CAFG] was the first online Al-Anon group listed at WSO. In September, 1997 the large meeting split into two. Our current membership is about 500 members with about 5 - 10 messages per day.  We have a weekly topic, chosen by a Group Chair who rotates monthly. The topics are usually based on a step or tradition that changes monthly. Sharing off topic is always welcome. Individual (one message at a time as it is sent to the list) or digest (all messages for one day in one large message), and no mail (read messages at the website) are available.  CAFG also has a chat room. Meeting times, when scheduled, will be posted on the calendar at the CAFG eGroups website. You must be a member to chat. The chat room is always open if members would like to arrange their own 'meeting'. Members can also chat one on one by agreeing on when to go to the chat room and clicking on the name of the member they would like to chat with.

Nar-Anon is a twelve-step program designed to help relatives and friends of addicts recover from the effects of living with an addicted relative or friend. Nar-Anon's program of recovery is adapted from Narcotics Anonymous and uses Nar-Anon's Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. The only requirement to be a member and attend Nar-Anon meetings is that there is a problem of drugs or addiction in a relative or friend.
National Association for Children of Alcoholics
The National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) believes that none of these vulnerable children should grow up in isolation and without support. NACoA is the national nonprofit membership organization working on behalf of children of alcohol and drug dependent parents.  Our mission is to advocate for all children and families affected by alcoholism and other drug dependencies. In a word, we help kids hurt by parental alcohol and drug use.
Online Al-Anon Information Service
Listing of online Al-Anon Family Groups (email & chat meetings).  As the Internet itself has rapidly grown in the past few years, members of Al-Anon Family Groups were included in the millions of people who went "online." Many of those members have naturally gathered themselves together to fellowship and share their experience, strength, and hope.  For many of us in the online community, Al-Anon on the Internet has been a wonderful supplement to our personal journey of recovery -- another tool we have added to help us work the program. But for many others, who were formerly "lone members" or limited by physical disability from attending regular "face-to-face" meetings, Online Al-Anon has been nothing short of a gift from a power greater than ourselves.  While Online Al-Anon should not substitute for person-to-person Al-Anon Family Group membership, due to its limitations in providing true personal contact with others in recovery, Al-Anon on the Internet has many advantages. "Meetings" on the Internet are virtually continuous and are not restricted by geographical differences. It is unfettered by time and space in its efforts to welcome and give comfort to the families of alcoholics.

On this page we will travel together into the world of the 12 Step Recovery Process. What you find here will be a collection of experience, strength and hope that is shared by millions of people worldwide! These steps are suggested as a plan for recovery, and can be combined with universal beliefs surrounding spiritual awareness. The most important concept within this process, is the knowledge of we-ness. This sounds humorous and is meant to be! We-ness encompasses the vital connection that must be accepted within the framework of the 12 steps. We are of a community together, not alone! Together we recover as we discover the 12-step path of living principles.
The S-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of the relatives and friends of sexually addicted people who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. Our program of recovery is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based on the Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. S-Anon's Twelve Concepts of Service provide guidance in serving each other in our business matters. There are no dues or fees for S-Anon membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. S-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; it does not wish to engage in any controversy; nor does it endorse or oppose any causes. Our primary purpose is to recover from the effects upon us of another person's sexaholism and to help the families and friends of sexaholics. We do this by applying the Twelve Steps of S-Anon to our lives and by welcoming and giving comfort to families of sexaholics.
