List of twelve-step groups : from Wikipedia

This is an incomplete list, which may never be able to satisfy certain standards for completeness. You can help by expanding it.

This is a list of twelve-step groups based on the set of guiding principles for recovery from addictive, compulsive, or other behavioral problems that was originally developed by Alcoholics Anonymous.[1] The twelve-step method has been adapted widely by fellowships of people recovering from various addictions, compulsive behaviors, and mental health problems. Additionally, some programs have adapted the twelve-step approach in part.

Programs patterned after Alcoholics Anonymous
