Group Description

WELCOME TO AOC! SEE BELOW FOR A SAMPLE OF OUR PROGRAM...

(We have room here, only for Steps 1-6, as adapted from other 12 Step programs for AOC. The full 12 Steps are available in our Files section along with other helpful materials)

AOC HAS CHOSEN TO PHRASE THE STEPS IN THE FIRST PERSON, of "I", RATHER THAN AS "WE", AS AOC IS A PROGRAM THAT FOCUSES ON SELF-STRENGTHENING THROUGH A PERSONAL HIGHER POWER.

The Twelve Steps: The 12 Steps are the spiritual guidelines for individual recovery.

1.I admit I feel powerless over My obsessions, My anxieties, and My compulsions; that My life feels, or has actually become, unmanageable.

2. I have come to believe that a Power greater than Myself, and I, could work together, with My 12 Step Program and group meetings, to restore Me to SERENITY.

3.I make an actual decision to turn My will and My life over to the care of a Higher Power, as I choose to define and understand the concept of a Power greater than Myself.

4.I examine My fears, compulsions, and behaviors, through rigorous self-honesty, in a searching and fearless written moral inventory. If I have involved others in My compulsions, I must admit it, and own My own behavior. I look in the mirror.

5.I admit to My Higher Power, to Myself, and to another trusted human being, the exact nature of My fears, My compulsions, and My behaviors.

6.I prepare Myself through prayer and meditation, to be entirely ready to have My Higher Power remove all My fears, My shortcomings, and My need to enact compulsions.

BELOW IS OUR VERSION OF "THE SERENITY PRAYER" AS ADAPTED FOR AOC.

Dear Higher Power, Please Grant me:
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
(My intrusive obsessions, and other people)
The Courage to change the things I can,
(My fears, My compulsive behaviors, and My Self)
and the Wisdom to know the difference.
