The Twelve-step programme is a guideline or spiritual principle that addicts are recommended to follow in order to complete the recovery process.
As an avid David Bowie fan, when this song came out it was a huge hit but it spoke to me in a special way. Years later in recovery, the words meant everything to me about what we need to do to change. The shame, aging and finally growing comfortable in my own skin through the 12 Step Programme of Recovery. It was all about looking inward and making changes despite the fear! I knew many years ago that I was going to call my treatment centre CHANGES. So I came up with the acronym. Centre for Healing Addictions Growth Emotional Serenity because that’s what recovery meant to me.
