The Twelve Steps outline our program for personal recovery. They form the core of recovery in Narcotics Anonymous. They are simple guidelines we can apply in everyday life that will help us get and stay clean.
The 12 steps contain spiritual principles that help us to clean up and realign our lives. The word “God” occurs in the text; this does not refer to a religion or belief, but everyone can use what suits him or her personally in the sense of a power that is greater than ourselves.
