Over the years, and since the AA's Twelve Steps were first published in 1939, there were many groups or brotherhoods that have adopted them as guidelines to overcome all kinds of difficulties and/or dependencies.
However, all these groups or brotherhoods decided, by putting their focus in a specific problem or addiction, to modify, alter or adapt these same steps, for the "exclusive" use of those that suffer from the same problems or dependencies.
On the other hand, Change & Grow ® Therapeutic Model, by being based on the 5 basic Principles, assisted by theTwelve Promises and also by the Twelve Steps, puts its focus, not on the problems or dependencies, but in their solution, allowing the use of their meetings in a more fully cross, comprehensive and inclusive way.
It was with this essentially "inclusive" purpose, that on the 28 October 2009 was held the first Change & Grow meeting in Lisbon, aimed at all of those that, regardless of their problems, dependencies (or even their absence), seek to live a free life, focused, not on the problems or dependencies, but in their solution.
Today, at the various Change & Grow meetings that already exist in several parts of the country, we embrace and celebrate life, in a collective recognition of our deep and true courage, allied to our enormous determination of becoming grateful, humble and happy people.
By all this reasons, Change & Grow ® meetings give a warm welcome to all who wish to make part of them, and You can also believe that through Change & Grow, you can start always looking for Positive side of Life...
