Anyone seeking to overcome any addiction or emotional struggle may participate in our Student Correspondence Course. This course thoroughly covers The 12 Steps.  Unlike traditional AA, we include teaching about Jesus as the Higher Power, prayer, fasting, and Bible study.  Questions are designed to help you apply the principles of recovery to your life.  For an overview of this program click here.
