Resources on Addiction
The 7/12 Connection in Addictions & Recovery, by Julie Sullwold, 2012. A workbook that explores the connection between our 7 Unitarian Universalist Principles and the 12 Steps of recovery programs, as well as providing a variety of approaches to the 12 Steps. This may prove a helpful tool for those who prefer to explore alternatives to the Judeo-Christian, white male orientation of AA, while retaining the core of what works in the 12 Steps.
