The January 2012 edition of the Arbor features step 1, Honesty, of the Addiction Recovery Program's twelve steps: "Admit that you, of yourself, are powerless to overcome your addictions and that your life has become unmanageable."
Beginning with this month each edition of the Arbor will focus on one of the twelve steps, in succession, so that by the end of the year the Arbor will have featured each of the twelve steps to recovery.
The Arbor also gives days and times of face-to-face and telephone Addiction Recovery and Family Support meetings. Some telephone meetings are for women only, others for men only. A person may call in to a telephone meeting and remain anonymous, while still benefiting from participation.
