General Videos on the 12 Steps

These videos give an overview of the 12 Step program from a variety of perspectives, showing how the principles of the 12 step program are versatile and adaptable to many spiritual viewpoints.

The 12 step program is considered to be a spiritual program at its heart, using spirituality in the broad sense of the word. As noted in Wikipedia, spirituality does not have a widely agreed upon definition since it can have various religious, psychological, cultural or personal aspects. The 12 Step program leaves the discovery of the meaning and definition of spirituality up to the individual in recovery. Overall it could be said, however, that the 12 step program has been most effective for people who embrace a definition of spirituality that includes certain principles, the most common being those of honesty, integrity, humility and/or love.
