By practicing the 12 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.

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.

Gamblers Anonymous Gamblers Anonymous  

 Our primary purpose is to stop gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same. Most of us have been unwilling to admit we were real problem gamblers. No one likes to think they are different from their fellows. Therefore, it is not surprising that our gambling careers have been characterized by countless vain attempts to prove we could gamble like other people. The idea that somehow, some day, we will control our gambling is the great obsession of every compulsive gambler. The persistence of this illusion is astonishing. Many pursue it into the gates of prison, insanity or death. We learned we had to concede fully to our innermost selves that we are compulsive gamblers. This is the first step in our recovery. With reference to gambling, the delusion that we are like other people, or presently may be, has to be smashed. We have lost the ability to control our gambling. We know that no real compulsive gambler ever regains control. All of us felt at times we were regaining control, but such intervals - usually brief -were inevitably followed by still less control, which led in time to pitiful and incomprehensible demoralization. We are convinced that gamblers of our type are in the grip of a progressive illness. Over any considerable period of time we get worse, never better. Therefore, in order to lead normal happy lives, we try to practice to the best of our ability, certain principles in our daily affairs.

Marijuana Anonymous

Who is a Marijuana Addict? We who are marijuana addicts know the answer to this question. Marijuana controls our lives! We lose interest in all else; our dreams go up in smoke. Ours is a progressive illness often leading us to addictions to other drugs, including alcohol. Our lives, our thinking, and our desires center around marijuana---scoring it, dealing it, and finding ways to stay high.

Nicotine Anonymous

Nicotine Anonymous® meetings consist of two or more people getting together to share a common desire to be free of nicotine. People share their experience, strength and hope. They learn what others have experienced while withdrawing from nicotine and how they use the Nicotine Anonymous program to obtain and keep their "smobriety". Telephone numbers are exchanged and friends are made. Sponsors are found to help us with the program. Perhaps most important, we find we are not alone in our struggle against nicotine.

Overeaters Anonymous

Have you tried diet clubs, shots, pills, weight doctors, etc., only to achieve short-lived success followed by further failures-gaining and regaining weight each time? Have you known the despair of feeling fat? Are you thin now, but know you are on your way up? Is your eating out of control? Many people want long-term freedom from their obsession with food and weight and often use extreme and unhealthy measures to achieve this including purging and starving. While some are able to achieve this freedom on their own, the majority struggle most of their lives with the problem. Overeaters Anonymous (OA) is a program based upon the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Today, it is an organization that has meetings on every continent and is growing. It treats the food and weight problem not as a lack of willpower or a moral defect, but as a disease that can be arrested. This 12-step program offers a recovery for the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of compulsive eating. OA is not a professional diet club. This organization does not endorse specific food plans or diets. OA offers a message of hope and recovery from this serious problem. No matter what size you are when you come to OA, if you want to be free of the obsession with food, the OA program can work for you. If you want to learn how to live a life free of compulsive eating, OA can help

Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA)

Sex Addicts Anonymous, S.A.A., is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so they may overcome their sexual addiction and help others recover from sexual addiction or dependency.

Sex Addiction can involve a wide variety of practices. Sometimes an addict has trouble with just one unwanted behavior, sometimes with many. A large number of sex addicts say their unhealthy use of sex has been a progressive process. It may have started with an addiction to masturbation, pornography (either printed or electronic), or a relationship, but over the years progressed to increasingly dangerous behaviors.

The essence of all addiction is the addicts' experience of powerlessness over a compulsive behavior, resulting in their lives becoming unmanageable. The addict is out of control and experiences tremendous shame, pain and self-loathing. The addict may wish to stop --- yet repeatedly fails to do so. The unmanageability of addicts' lives can be seen in the consequences they suffer: losing relationships, difficulties with work, arrests, financial troubles, a loss of interest in things not sexual, low self-esteem and despair.
