Back to the Basics of Recovery Booklet
A companion piece for the Back to the Basics of Recovery Meeting Leader Guide and the Book

This Back to the Basics of Recovery Booklet is a twenty-eight page, 5½“x 8½“ companion piece for the First Edition/Eight Printing of the Back to the Basics of Recovery Meeting Leader Guide and the Back to the Basics of Recovery book, both of which are 2020 versions of Wally P’s bestselling Back to Basics. He has rewritten his recovery classic so it can be used within ALL Twelve-step communities, treatment centers, aftercare facilities, half-way houses, recovery homes, correctional institutions, and drug courts. The material has been modified for all addictive, compulsive, and problematic behaviors, and the “Big Book” passages have been converted to conventional, everyday, gender neutral language.

Over the past twenty-five years, Wally has taken more than 100,000 people through the Twelve Steps in weekend seminars and one-day work-shops. During this time, he has continued to modify and simplify the process to where today this format is the most effective and successful method ever developed for taking the Twelve Steps “quickly and often.”

In keeping with Dr. Bob’s “keep it simple” philosophy, Wally P. has put together a pro-gram that is “all inclusive; never exclusive.” This booklet will show you how to take the Steps in a few hours and recover from “a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body.” It will change your life, no matter what your problem or difficulty.
