12 steps to recovery

The UPA does not recommend taking pharmaceutical prescription drugs, or seeking help from government organizations.

The UPA recommends following the 12 steps to recovery if you are struggling with addiction, harmful thoughts, or thoughts of suicide.

Here is what you must do to liberate yourself from the addiction, or negative thought which consumes you.

Keep in mind that YOU must do the bulk of the work; nobody, not even God will do everything for you.

Step 1

Admit that you, of yourself, are currently powerless to overcome your addiction or negative thoughts – that your life has become unmanageable.

Step 2

Open your mind to the possibility that a higher power (God/ The Universe/ Nature/ your own higher self) could restore you to complete spiritual health, and mental sanity.

Step 3

Meditate / pray to seek out God, and your own spiritual self, in order to possibly develop a better understanding of the universe around you.

Step 4

Make a fearless internal search of your morals, and write them down in a journal.

Step 5

Admit to yourself, and to another person whom you can trust, the exact nature of your addiction or negative thoughts.

Step 6

Open your heart to become entirely ready to remove all your weakness, and negative energy.

Step 7

Humbly ask God/ The Universe, along with your Ancestors to help remove your shortcomings.

Step 8

Make a written list of all undeserving persons you have harmed, and become willing to make restitution to them – Wherever possible, make direct restitution to all persons you have harmed.

Step 9

Make a decision to transform your life, so that you can become the best version of yourself, in order to serve your higher purpose.

Step 10

Continue to take a personal inventory of your thoughts, dreams, and opinions, in your journal – when you are wrong, promptly admit it out loud and in the journal.

Step 11

Seek through prayer and meditation to know only how to serve the highest good, to discover your true destiny, and to have the power to carry it out.

Step 12

Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of your own free will, share this message with others and practice these principles in all you do.

Chose JOY!


If you cannot complete all steps at a single time, have patience and do the best you can the following day.

We are all on a journey to better ourselves; you are not alone.

Do not be afraid to talk with your friends and family about what is happening.

Life is a constant struggle we must all endure; for it is better to have difficulty to learn and grow from, than it is to have nothing at all.

Every person will have moments of happiness, sadness, strength, weakness, rage, regret, because we are all human.

Keep fighting every day; DO NOT GIVE UP.
