Addictions and Trauma Recovery Teamwork
In Ch. 7 What can The Twelve Steps Do For Me? Mavis addresses these popular questions:
· Which meeting should I attend?
· Can I attend the same meeting as the addict?
· What is anonymity?
· How do I identify myself during meetings?
· Do I have to speak during the meeting or can I just listen?
· What if I’m a male co-addict and the 12-step meetings for co-addicts in my town do not allow men?
· Why do 12-step fellowships work?
· How do I “work” a program?
· What is a sponsor?
· Will finding a sponsor be difficult?
· Do the 12 steps help with couples’ issues?
· How will my religious beliefs be affected by working the program?
· What if I don’t feel a connection with my group?
