Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous --

ASCAA - a 12 step program - Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous


Literature / Printed Materials

Dozens of groups have been created that emulate the AA program of healing and recovery that was first described in the book Alcoholics Anonymous (aka: the "Big Book") in the late 1930's. That's because it works.
Other well known AA literature would include a group of essays written by its co-founder which discusses each of the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions (commonly referred to as the "12&12"). For now, these can both be used to understand the 12 Step program as a "design for living" that results in healing and recovery.
