The Purpose of TSSR

          TSSR is a grassroots movement of men and women who have come together to bring the Twelve Step message of hope and recovery beyond the privacy walls of existing fellowship groups, and share these powerful tools with anyone and everyone who desires positive change in their life.  

        For many years, those of us who have reaped the miraculous blessings from completing the Twelve Steps have been saying, “Gee, I wish my family and friends had these amazing tools!  And how great would the world be if everyone enjoyed the same opportunities we’ve had to heal and recover?!”  And yet, not much has been done to specifically help the rest of our fellows learn about the Twelve Step toolkit.  TSSR was thereby formed to provide meetings and support where anyone may come learn how to practice the Twelve Step tools and principles in their daily affairs.  Our movement believes, as Bill Wilson the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous conceived, that despite the negative actions we see people exhibiting on the outside, these manifestations are but symptoms of a much deeper internal malady resulting from people becoming “Spiritually Sick”.

       Now it is important to understand that the condition of spiritual sickness has nothing to do with religion or a person’s faith beliefs, but instead means that our innermost essence or spirit or soul has become ill.  Both from the sick actions of others and from the general negativity we encounter each and every day in our modern world.  TSSR believes that by going through the process of the Twelve Steps anyone can be healed of this condition and have their life dramatically changed for the better.  Ultimately resulting in returning us to the pure and original state we once were at birth, and as “Happy, Joyous and Free” young children.

        Everyone is welcome to attend TSSR groups with the only requirement for membership being the desire to learn about and try the Twelve Step tools and principles for oneself.

How Can The Twelve Steps Help Me?

       Millions of people across the world have used the Twelve Steps to recover from just about every condition one could imagine.  From alcohol and drugs, to gambling and overspending, to depression and overeating and codependency, you name it.  If you have a problem in your life that you can't seem to fix and access to the internet, chances are there is a twelve step meeting tailored just for you.  But what about the rest of the population who aren't really sure what their main issues are?  Well, TSSR was created just for you. 

        Perhaps you, like so many others, are frustrated and fed-up with the negativity and sick, destructive actions we see taking place in our modern world each and everyday.  Perhaps, you too, have heard the small whispering voice inside calling out and saying, "Life shouldn't be like this.  My life, shouldn't be like this!"  TSSR believes that the root of much of our world's troubles comes from the condition of people becoming "Spiritually Sick".  This destructive change occurs over our lifetime as our internal essence gets stomped on way too many times by an imperfect world filled with equally confused and damaged people.  Then it's very much like the phrase utilized in psychotherapy how, "Hurt people, end up hurting other people.", and the cycle only continues.  Most importantly, spiritual sickness causes the light we once had in our eyes as children to slowly go out, and we lose our ability to feel "Happy, Joyous and Free" about our life.  Instead, we're waking up with anxiety and depression and a fifty pound weight in our gut, with very little motivation and even less enthusiasm about getting up out of bed to go to work.    

        The good news is that by going through the Twelve Steps anyone can reclaim and heal this original essence still present inside themselves.  Those of us in recovery witness this miracle taking place every day in the rooms of Twelve Step recovery meetings, including TSSR.  Ordinary average people uncovering and reconnecting to who they most truthfully are inside, and then reshaping and changing the trajectory of their path to have a way of living infinitely more rewarding than any they've ever known.  The Twelve Steps has helped to heal the historical damage done to their little kid inside, and they finally know freedom from their past injuries, resentments, and deepest emotional wounds.  The result being a brand new state of walking through the world described by Bill Wilson, the co-founder of AA as, "The Fourth Dimension of Existence."  If you too have had enough of a life that isn't really working for you, and you see that the choices you keep making are holding your inner-child's spirit from Soaring- Then maybe you too are ready to try TSSR for yourself!


How To Get Started

        Please come join us at one of our meetings listed above, either in person or on Zoom, and see if TSSR is right for you.  We would love to have the chance to share our experience, strength and hope.  It is our sincere desire that everyone in the world will one day have open access to the life-changing toolkit of Twelve Step recovery. 

        Also, anyone may start a TSSR meeting in their home or at a public community center, a treatment facility or a local church in their own neck of the world.  The only thing you need to get started is two or more people gathered together to discuss their everyday challenges and problems, and the willingness to try the Twelve Step principles and tools for positive progress.  As more groups sprout up and become available, it is our aim to keep this website updated to help you find the support and fellowship to facilitate your own fun and exciting recovery adventure.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to share your own journey of growth and progress.  (Our email is available on the "Contact Us" page available from the link located at the top of this page.)
