12 Steps

The Steps They Took to Sobriety are Refferred to as the 12 Steps Which are:

Renaissance Ranch is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility. We use the traditional 12 Step approach to addiction recovery and combine them with LDS Gospel principles as they apply to addiction. We also incorporate cognitive therapy, family treatment and recreational or experiential therapy.

The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous have been utilized by millions for over 70 years and have proven to be the most effective methodology for long-term sobriety. This all began with the Four Absolutes adopted by the Oxford Groups in the 1930s and were expanded by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith to the current 12 Steps. Their chance meeting resulted in a sharing of experiences and ideas. They founded Alcoholics Anonymous on June 10, 1935 – Dr. Bob’s first day of permanent sobriety.


We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable.

Step 1: Honesty


Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Step 2: Hope


Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Step 3: Trust in God


Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.      

Step 4: Truth


Admitted to God, to ourselves, and another human being, the exact nature of our wrongs.

Step 5: Confession


Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. 

Step 6: Change of Heart


Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.                                                                                                

Step 7: Humility


Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

Step 8: Forgiveness


Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. 

Step 9: Restitution and Reconciliation


Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.    

Step 10: Daily Accountability


Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we know Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

Step 11: Personal Revelation


Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.                                      

Step 12: Service
