We encourage all those who are studying Alcoholics Anonymous and 12-Step Program history, as well as those who are members of 12-Step Fellowships and groups, Christian recovery groups, Christ-centered recovery programs, treatment programs, counseling programs, and support groups to go to my main website (www.dickb.com).
In the center column of the front page of this main website, you will find a succinct statement of where A.A. came from, what it used to be like, what happened, and what it is like now. Also, some of the principal factors involved in the origins, history, founding, original program, and astonishing successes of the early A.A. Christian fellowship founded in Akron, Ohio in 1935. Also, the resources that are available on my website to help those who still suffer, those who work with others, and those who want to know more about alcoholism and addiction programs, recoveries, and cures.
Again, go to the main website: www.dickb.com. There are ample navigation guides, and you can even use Google to help you find books, articles, names, and historical items. It's all on the main website, and it's for your assistance and ease of documentation and research.
The material on this main website is the product of my 24 years of continuous sobriety as an active and recovered A.A. member, my 20 years of research and writing, and the end products--39 published titles, over 450 articles, audio talks, radio programs, and recordings of my addresses at conferences. There is more. Much more. You are invited to check it all out.
God Bless, Dick B. firstname.lastname@example.org; 808 874 4876.
