Even though these 12 Steps are one of the most commonly used techniques in the treatment of addiction, they hardly help anyone achieve sobriety only using them. These steps at as living guidelines but people are required to make use of other tools if they wish to achieve sobriety which will last for long. Groups making use of the 12 Steps highly motivate their members to attend meetings regularly and the construction of a firm recovery support structure as a part of an efficient recovery program.
