This is the first book written that focuses on the Twelve Steps as they specifically apply to adults reared in addictive and other dysfunctional families. Revised and updated, “The 12 Steps for Adult Children” continues to be a ground breaking work. It truly is a transforming tool for adults who suffer the effects of growing up in a troubled environment and who seek healing from the hurtful effects of their life events and experiences.

Adults reared in chaotic families rarely develop a sense of personal security or genuine feelings of self-worth. Seldom feeling safe and loved as children, as adults they are handicapped in their ability to feel whole or to give and receive love.

Based upon the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, this book offers a format for moving from isolation and denial to acceptance and competence in dealing with feelings of anger, guilt, fear and despair. By releasing the past and opening up to the present, individuals begin to develop confidence in the realization that they are valuable and worth-while persons.

Written by adult children in recovery, the book offers a twelve-step format for understanding and dealing with feelings of anger, guilt, fear, and despair. By releasing the past, individuals learn that they are valuable and worthwhile just the way they are. For a useful companion book, refer to "Prayers for The 12 Steps – A Way Out".

The book adapts the Twelve Steps that were written over seventy five years ago when Alcoholics Anonymous was founded. This program teaches us how God uses the healing power of the Twelve Steps as a way to restore the lives of countless individuals. Members of Alcoholics Anonymous carry the healing message to others, acknowledging that they know what it feels like to be broken by life and mended by God. It is dedicated to all those who have found healing through the twelve-step program, and who continue to choose to share their experience, strength and hope with those still searching.
