Twelve-step groups are the foundation and most widely recognized of nearly all addiction recovery programs. Twelve-step groups include Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Gamblers Anonymous. Although the primary focus of twelve-step groups is addiction recovery, group support allows individuals to share their strengths, experiences, and hopes with each other. The twelve-step recovery process is a set of principles—known as steps—that are used toward addiction recovery. For example, the steps include abstinence from addictive substances or behavior, positive social relationships, positive physical and emotional health, and improved spiritual strength (Mejta, Naylor, & Maslar, 1994). Twelve-step groups are spiritually based—meaning while they acknowledge a “Higher Power” —they are not associated with any organized religion or dogma (Alcoholics Anonymous, 2012). In addition, during and after treatment, the twelve-step community is available for ongoing support
In addition to Twelve-Step groups other self-help recovery groups have developed in more recent years. For example Rational Recovery, Smart Recovery, Moderation Management, Women for Sobriety Secular Organizations for Sobriety (S.O.S.), and LifeRing Secular Recovery. These organizations support people identifying themselves as having an issue with drugs and alcohol but do not adhere to the same theoretical principles of a twelve step group.
To Prepare:
Attend three self-help group meetings, one from each of the following areas. You may attend one of these groups online.
An OPEN twelve-step meeting of your choice in your community (e.g., Alcoholics Anonymous [AA], Narcotics Anonymous [NA], Gamblers Anonymous [GA])
A self-help recovery group other than a twelve-step group (e.g., Rational Recovery, Smart Recovery, Moderation Management, Women for Sobriety Secular Organizations for Sobriety (S.O.S.), LifeRing Secular Recovery, etc.)
An Alcoholics Anonymous Family Group (e.g., Al-Anon).
For this Assignment, review this week’s resources, including the “Twelve-Step Groups” document, and research the development of the non-twelve step group you chose to attend. Consider your assumptions prior to and after attending each meeting chosen. Explore insights from attending the meeting and consider how this experience might be helpful as an addiction professional. Support your response with references to the resources and current literature.
Submit a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:
Identify which 3 meetings you attended, and briefly describe the development of the non-twelve step meeting you attended.
Describe your initial assumptions before attending each meeting.
Explain any insights you gained from attending each meeting.
Compare and contrast your experience at the different meetings.
Explain how this experience might inform your future work as an addiction professional.
(You can research 3 self help groups in Hawaii and just make something up.)

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
