Features to Support your 12 Step Journey

Online Step Study

We have 10-15 recovery topics for every step and more on the way. You'll get the opportunity to answer several thought-provoking questions for each one as well as contemplate a spiritual connection related to the topic. Topics explore everything from our feelings of being overwhelmed to our newfound sense of freedom.


Interactive Questions

Every topic contains 3-5 questions and you'll be able to journal about your feelings, memories, action plans, and opinions for each one. You can also tie your answers to the People, Places, Events and Things for powerful cross-references.

My Life 

This feature lets you create lists of the important People, Places, Events and Things from your Life. You'll be able to use each one that you've documented as 'Tags' that can be incorporated into Journals and Workpage answers. Tags are searchable keywords that create cross-reference lists for anything you define. This is great preparation for doing a thorough job when it comes time to work on your Inventories and other Step activities.
