Some people hesitate to get involved in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) because of preconceived notions that the program is religious. Although the 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) are considered a set of spiritual principles, there is no requirement to be religious or to believe in God to join AA. The AA program, including AA meetings in Iowa, has no religious affiliation. The definition of “spiritual” does not necessarily incorporate any deity, although their Higher Power (HP) is God for some people in the program.
A recovering person in AA is encouraged to identify one’s own HP. An HP could be God, the universe or, a person’s connection to nature; it could even be one’s AA group. For many atheist or agnostic people, the AA group represents a power greater than themselves that can help restore one to sanity, as the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous describes. Although spiritual terms are challenging to put into words, in a nutshell, the significance of identifying an HP is that it allows a recovering person to find purpose and faith in something more significant than the self and the ego, lending itself to a sense of acceptance and peace.
