The Twelve Steps

The Twelve Steps 

The course will present healthcare providers with an overview of the twelve step recovery program. You will learn about the history of twelve step programs, the mission of Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as the beliefs of the organization, and other organizations that have adopted the twelve step model. By the end of the course you will be able to describe each step in the twelve step program and promote empathy for individuals in support groups. This course will emphasize Alcoholics Anonymous, since this was the original program upon which others were later modeled.
