Cultural Considerations for 12-Step Recovery Programs
Hosted by NAADAC
It is widely known that the original creators of the 12-step recovery program were largely White, Christian, middle-class men and they still remain the biggest population in most 12-step programs today. This talk will discuss the common experiences people from marginalized populations encounter when working a 12-step program designed for a privileged population, and different cultural adaptations that have been utilized to address these different experiences. Topics covered will be the role of powerlessness, the God problem, focus on personal responsibility, dealing with discrimination and oppression, and finding self-reflection in group members.
