"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 Faith With Works Publishing Company 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 A.A. seminars.

New Meeting in Washburn WI

The Deerfield Beach Fl meeting (The Bottom Line Group) is now the Pompano Beach Fl meeting

(Click the link for the new location details)

Québec UPDATED! 5 Meetings added!
Glen Allen VA UPDATED! Meeting since 1999!


"Authors note: I do not believe in 'making money out of A.A.' Any proceeds from this book, after out of pocket expenses are met, will be used to distribute books at no cost to individuals and groups who cannot afford to buy them."

Tradition 5. Each group has but one primary purpose-to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.

After receiving notification from the General Service Office about our mission statement, the Board of Directors of the Back to Basics Foundation met in a special session and voted to change the wording of the statement so it would be in compliance with the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.

The Board also voted to move all materials pertaining to other Twelve Step programs to separate web sites, so there would be no confusion about the primary purpose of the Back to Basics Foundation.

We ask for your patience in this matter because, at the present time, we have no means to accomplish this objective. We have no paid employees, and continue to operate with a negative cash flow. If it is God's will, there will be sufficient individual donations to make the wishes of the Board of Directors a reality.

The Back to Basics Foundation is a 501 (C) 3, not-for-profit Corporation dedicated to saving the lives of alcoholics. Our modified mission statement is listed below.

Mission Statement - Who We Are

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

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