12-step Method of Recovery

Individuals who wish to end oxycodone use or want to strengthen their resolve to remain drug-free may join Narcotics Anonymous (NA). NA has a structure similar to that of the more well-known Alcoholics Anonymous. The 12 steps NA uses are as follows:

  • Admit that you are powerless over your addiction, that your life has become unmanageable.
  • Come to believe that a power greater than yourself can restore you to sanity.
  • Make a decision to turn your will and life over to the care of God as you understand Him.
  • Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of yourself.
  • Admit to God, yourself, and to another human being the exact nature of your wrongs.
  • Be ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  • Humbly ask God to remove your shortcomings.
  • Make a list of all the people you have harmed and become willing to make amends to them all
  • Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  • Continue to take personal inventory, and when you are wrong, promptly admit it.
  • Seek, through prayer and meditation, to improve your conscious contact with God as you understand Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  • Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, try to carry this message to addicts, and practice these principles in all your affairs.
