No. The 12 Steps of AA conflict with 21st century scientific concepts.
For example, step one and step two state, “We admitted we were powerless over alcohol”, and “we came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.” HRC does not teach clients they are powerless; we empower clients with the knowledge they need to regain their health and enjoy a chemical-free future.
HRC also does not instruct clients to pray to a power “greater than themselves” to save them. We provide our clients with the tools they need to control their own journey to health.
Finally, many of the lifestyle changes HRC promotes to restore well being are impossible in the chemically toxic environments (smoking, caffeine, sugar/junk food) characteristic of many AA meetings.
All that being said, we support the freedom of choice for clientele. If you choose to attend AA meetings while participating in our 6-week program, we will help you to find a local chapter.
