There ?s a new way out of addictions, alcoholism, and life-controlling problems. Disappointed and discouraged, many today would abandon A.A., 12 Step programs, treatment, and therapy because of low success rates. But there is a far better way: look to the history, principles, and practices of early A.A. with its documented 75% to 93% success rate among medically incurable alcoholics who really tried. That?s when A.A. did work.Also, look to the history, principles, and practices of the world-wide societies which spawned A.A. ideas and were highly effective?the Salvation Army, the Rescue and Gospel Missions, United Christian Endeavor Society, Young Men?s Christian Association. You will see a common thread. You?ll see it in early A.A. too. And this book will tell you about it. Then, look to the history, principles, and practices of churches, clergy, para-church, Christ-centered, and Christian recovery programs. Look to the histories of healing by religious means. It dates from the Old Testament and follows through to today. When people relied upon the Creator, accepted Christ, called upon God in Jesus? name for cure, and believed, they received. A New Way Out leads to the power of God, the name of Jesus Christ, the love of God and neighbor, and serving others. It applauds the good things in A.A. and 12 Step programs. It respects the good things in religion. It grounds you in the historical elements of recovery by the power of God and then points you to support groups and church armed as you will be with those elements of each that worked in the earliest days, and those that don?t work today.
