How The Model Works

Those who display sincerity in their attempt to break their reliance on alcohol and drugs receive the needed assistance from the 12-step plan. Many people have recorded success in their struggles with addiction because of the encouragement received from associating with members of the group and the measures put in place to help members of the group.
