Helping Those Who Need It Most - One Day At A Time

Self Help & Twelve Step


 The Golden Books

Hazelden is extremely proud to once again offer this early classic recovery series. The Golden Books series is composed of fourteen booklets written by the late Father 'John Doe' who was an immensely popular lecturer and author. These treasured booklets offer thoughtful positive advice on almost every human experience. Helpful in examining character defects or in exploring the realm of spirituality these booklets are firmly grounded in the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. And yes! we have The Golden Tapes as well.


Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions

Originally published in 1952 this classic book is used by A.A. members and groups around the world. It lays out the principles by which A.A. members recover and by which the fellowship functions. The basic text clarifies the Steps which constitute the A.A. way of life and the Traditions by which A.A. maintains its unity. 


  Alcoholics Anonymous -- The Big Book

This is the classic text guiding the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. This third expanded edition relates how millions of men and women have recovered from alcoholism. Though the basic text as it appeared in 1939 remains unchanged the personal stories in Part II have been expanded and are of special interest to those who may not be sure that they are alcoholic. Affectionately known as The Big Book.


The Little Red Book Collection

This collection includes 'The Little Red Book' (hardcover) and 'The Little Red Book Study Guide.' 'The Little Red Book' is the classic introduction to the principles of AA. For more than 50 years this book has helped recovering alcoholics understand the purpose of the Twelve Steps and the wisdom they contain. 'The Little Red Book Study Guide' takes that concept a step further by providing a simple structure for making the lessons of 'The Little Red Book' part of everyday living. Its perfect for anyone in a Twelve Step group or studying individually. 


  Narcotics Anonymous

This is the basic text of the Narcotics Anonymous fellowship. Just as with alcoholism, there is no 'cure' for narcotic addiction but recovery is possible through a program adapted from the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. This book written by addicts for addicts about addicts sets forth the spiritual principles of Narcotics Anonymous that hundreds of thousands of addicts have used in recovery. Intended as a complete textbook for every addict seeking recovery Narcotics Anonymous describes the N.A. program and how it works. It includes the N.A. Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions as well as many personal stories of men and women who have found freedom from addiction through Narcotics Anonymous.



The most complete history of A.A. ever written. 'Not-God' contains anecdotes and excerpts from the diaries correspondence and occasional memoirs of A.A.'s early figures. A fascinating fast-moving and authoritative account of the discovery and development of the program and fellowship that we know today as Alcoholics Anonymous. 


  Twelve Step Sponsorship

Passing it on is a key concept in the Twelve Step community and many of the traditions and knowledge of the Twelve Step recovery program have been passed down by word-of-mouth from one generation of sponsors to the next. 'Twelve Step Sponsorship' effectively takes this knowledge and tradition and applies it to a working manual for sponsors guiding them through their role in reaching out and helping new program members. Designed as a 'how-to' program for sponsors, 'Twelve Step Sponsorship' offers: reading assignments, common questions that sponsors face, procedural suggestions for leading a newcomer through the Twelve Steps, general guidelines for becoming an effective sponsor. 'Twelve Step Sponsorship' offers sponsors the first complete handbook for working with a newcomer -- from the first meeting through the Twelfth Step and into the years that follow.


Understanding the Twelve Steps

 This is one of the best books I found for helping people to truly understand the tasks involved in working the steps. Too often addicts and alcoholics think they understand when in fact they are confused or too embarrassed to ask. Success with the steps comes from practical application of the principles in daily life. This book takes a no-nonsense approach and "tells it like it is." It provides great examples of how to use the steps in real life.
