A few decades later the twelve-steps saved my life, my brother’s life, his wife’s life, my uncle’s life, and countless friend’s lives. After witnessing the power of the twelve-step process my family, friends, and I opened a twelve-step recovery program and retreat in The Poconos of Pennsylvania for adult men and women who suffer from addiction. Over the past two decades the thousands of miracles that I have witnessed, and lives saved are due to the twelve-step process. New Beginning Ministry in Beach Lake, PA. has been our labor of love, born out of addiction. You can find out more about New Beginning at www.newbeginningmin.org. Helping people who suffer from addiction to get their lives back has become my life’s work- I’ve been blessed to be able to work with thousands of individuals and their families over the past few decades.There is so much wrong information about addiction recovery, and false information about the 12-steps and the different fellowships and programs- the truth is that these programs work and that they save lives! I felt it was my obligation to share what I have learned over the past 47 years about addiction recovery and the twelve-step process. I originally got clean and sober at a twelve-step retreat that was started by one of the Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous, Bill W., it was at this retreat that I started to realize that I had a calling on my life to help other sick and suffering alcoholics and substance abusers.After two decades of teaching on addiction recovery and the twelve-step process, and developing my skills as a professional writer, it only made sense to combine the two and share this life-saving information with a larger audience. My mom passed on five years ago with over forty years of sobriety, and today I celebrate nineteen years!My dream is to share my knowledge with as many individuals as I can during my lifetime, building an army of twelve-step professionals who can help save lives. It doesn’t matter if you are reading this book for yourself, a family member, or a dear friend- the information contained within the pages here can be life changing. I know that these steps changed and saved my life!
