B. Article Titled, What has Happened . . . ?
Considered by many to be A.A.’s Wake-up
“. . . 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
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
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.
