12 Steps of AA for Atheists and Freethinkers
Dennis is also concerned about atheist and agnostic substance sufferers who want help from AA but object to the mention of God 4 times and the reference to a Higher Power in AA’s 12 Steps. He uses his own version called The Universal 12 Steps of AA for Atheists and Freethinkers and includes a brief commentary on each step with some frequently asked questions by new members. He points out that AA is invaluable in providing non-judgmental support so important in long term recovery.
An Alcoholics Anonymous meeting that uses the ‘inventories’ that Dennis wrote on the 12-steps, 12-traditions and the 12-concepts of service has been ongoing for over 30 years.
