Twelve Step recovery programs address the individual’s spirituality and refer to a “Power greater than oneself” and “God as we understand God” as a source of personal change and support. Participants in Twelve Step recovery programs find their spiritual connection helps them to sustain recovery when challenged with difficult situations. This presentation by best-selling author and clinician Jeff Jay is based on his new book, Navigating Grace. It will describe the spiritual foundations of recovery and discuss how spiritual connection helps recovering people navigate through adversity. The presentation will include inspiring personal testimony to the power of grace in one’s darkest hours and the miraculous moments that change one’s life forever.
