A Universal Spiritual Pathway of Recovery: AA

People often respond positively or negatively to 12 Step programs; rarely neutral. Phil hopes to bridge the abyss by highlighting some spiritual principles found not only for Alcoholics Anonymous, but all 12 Step programs. Indeed, Phil believes these principles span across multiple pathways of recovery. Come see if you agree.
