Al-Anon Twelfth Step, “Carrying the Message”:
Getting Involved in Service

Twelfth Step Al-Anon Service is an important part of your recovery, a way to give back, and a way to help others.

Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
