"Step takers, not meeting makers, make it. Meeting makers make meetings. Step Takers make a difference."  -  Wally P

Since the release of the Back to Basics book in 1997, more than 700,000 have been through this "original" Beginners' Meetings format from the 1940's that produced a 50-75% recovery rate during the early days of the recovery movement. We are seeing similar results today in the more than 7,000 meetings held each week. Click here for a meeting in your area.

Cliff B. Article Titled, What has Happened . . . ?
Published 07/23/2004
Considered by many to be A.A.’s Wake-up Call

“. . . The alcoholics who participated in the writing of the “Big Book” didn't wait (to take the steps). They took the Steps in the first few days following their last drink. Thank God, there are those in our Fellowship, like Joe and Charlie, Wally, etc., who have recognized the problem and have started doing something about it. They are placing the focus back on the “Big Book.”

 

Wally P. has no royalty arrangement with Back to Basics and receives NO income from any literature he has published nor from CDs / DVDs he has produced. He insists that this is his Twelfth Step work for which he cannot be paid.

We thank you for your interest in our life-saving Back to Basics seminars.

Mission Statement - Who We Are

The Back to Basics Foundation is dedicated to saving the lives of alcoholics, addicts and obsessive compulsives by showing them the sheer simplicity of the program of recovery and by guiding them through the Twelve Steps as they were taken by many of the pioneers in the 1940's. During this period of time, the recovery rate from addiction was 50-75%. We are seeing similar results today for those who are willing to remain involved with the Back to Basics Beginners' meetings for three to six months.

We accomplish our objective by coordinating the recovery efforts of the numerous Back to Basics Beginners' meetings and groups, answering questions as they arise, following up on Twelfth Step calls. We also conduct one day and weekend seminars based on the Back to Basics program and distribute recovery literature and other materials on the Beginners' meetings.
