Opium 12-Step Program

Opium12-step programs are recovery programs for those suffering from addiction. These programs enable individuals to feel empowered to overcome their opium addiction through practical steps. Any recovering addict is welcome at a 12-step group meeting, and membership is typically free. 12-step programs offer help, understanding and accountability.

What to Expect from an Opium 12-Step Meeting

Group formats vary between 12-step programs. Size, demographic, and type and intensity of addiction can influence how meetings will be structured. Typically, there will be a period of time set aside to share and hear testimonies from people talking about experiences with opium addiction and their struggles to remain sober. 12-step programs are typically anonymous, protecting the identity of participants and allowing them to share without hesitation.

The 12 Steps of Opium Addiction Recovery

Opium is a narcotic drug, and, for those do not live in a large enough city to find groups specific to opium, Narcotics Anonymous (NA) may be the first choice for a 12-step program. The goal of NA is a create an environment where individuals begin to believe and live through each step of the program. The 12 steps of NA are as follows:

  1. We admitted we were powerless over drugs in that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Come to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all of these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible except when doing so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take moral inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
