This was originally created by the Alcoholics Anonymous group in order to beat alcohol addiction. It gained its popularity from its early successful implementation in beating alcohol abuse that the drug rehab treatment adapted its own version of the 12-step program. Many nonbelievers have relied on the 12 Steps describing it very supportive despite the fact that it is strongly spiritual. Room was made for a variety of explanations of the concept according to how people can explain the idea of a God.


Similar 12 step-programs are presently being used with a great deal of success to treat addictions and retrogressive behaviours, from Cocaine Anonymous to Debtors Anonymous.
