Native American 12 Recovery Steps

  1. Admit that because of my dependence on alcohol, I have been unable to care for my family and myself.
  2. I believe that a Greater Spirit can help me regain my responsibilities and model the life of my forefathers.
  3. I totally rely on the ability of the Greater Spirit to watch over me.
  4. I strive everyday to get to know myself and my position within the nature of things.
  5. I admit to the Greater Spirit and to my Native American brothers and sisters the weakness of my life.
  6. I pray daily to the Greater Spirit to help me.
  7. I pray daily to the Greater Spirit to help me correct my weaknesses.
  8. I make an effort to remember all those that I have caused harm to whenever possible through the guidance of the great spirit achieve the strength to try to make amends.
  9. I do make amends to all those that I have caused harm to whenever possible through the guidance of the Great Spirit.
  10. I do admit when I have done wrong to myself, those around me and those the Great Spirit.
  11. I seek through purification, prayer, and meditation to communicate with the Great Spirit as a child to a father in the Indian way.

Having addressed these steps, I carry this brotherhood and steps of sobriety to all my Native American brothers and sisters with alcohol and other substance abuse problems.  Together we share all these principles in all of our daily lives.
