Today, almost everywhere you turn, celebrity misadventures with alcohol and drug use, overdoses, and relapses are splashed across the headlines. Popular starlets are doing time” in rehab for theft and misconduct. Yesterday’s heroes congregate before the camera for a Twelve-Step meeting or a therapy session. Although this spate of media attention has made the public increasingly aware of the dangers of drinking and drugging, what does this mean for Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and similar 12-Step programs that were founded on such Traditions as anonymity and not drawing the AA name into public controversy.In Living the Twelve Traditions in Today’s World, seasoned writer and AA historian Mel B. uses transcripts of speeches by Bill W. and original documents chronicling the development of the 12 Traditions to examine their importance to the survival, integrity, and success of AA and other 12-Step organizations. Popular speaker and archivist Mike F. then looks at the relevance of each of the Traditions in the twenty-first centurytheir importance for recovering people’s ongoing sobriety and for the future of the Fellowship.Together, Mel B. and Mike F. explore what aspects of the Traditions hold strong and what have been overlooked or have even evolved since they were formally adopted at the First International AA Convention in 1950. In the end, they find strength and hope in a radical organizational model and culture born from a lasting concept: principles over personalities.Living the Twelve Traditions in Today’s World is part of Hazelden’s Legacy 12 publishing initiative, which was created to enrich people’s recovery with dynamic multimedia works that use rare, original-source documents to bring AA and Twelve Step history alive.
