Fall Creek, in the Three Sisters Wilderness

The 12 Steps, created and practiced by recovery groups, provide solutions to people in search of greater spiritual freedom. Spiritual consultation in a 12 Step format is not a substitute for help required from a certified addictions counselor, nor should it replace recommended work with a sponsor from any specific program. Clients can nonetheless benefit from spiritual consultation in order to deepen their practice of the 12 Steps, especially if they seek to reconcile the concepts of the Steps with the wisdom and discipline of their own spiritual tradition. They may also explore new resources that are a good personal fit to support their efforts in prayer and meditation, as well as extending themselves in service to their fellows in recovery.
