The men at Jaywalkers Landing program and the families who attend our family program study a pamphlet called the 12 Simple Steps by Dan Reed, Solutions Program Director. They are a brief overview of the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and how to work them in daily life. Men who come in to the Landing may not have much knowledge of the 12 steps and this is an easy way to begin to learn how they work and how to utilize them. It is important for the families of our clients to understand the journey that our men undertake during their recovery process. The 12 Simple Steps provide an easy introduction to the world of 12 step recovery. The 12 steps are a vital part of the recovery here at Jaywalker and learning the basics at the Landing is a great way to start off our recovery.
