Please find here some valuable documents to read when you're ready.
Reading those documents before your first ASCA meeting is not mandatory, but we recommend that you at least familiarize yourself with the "Welcome" and "Supportive Feedback" documents.
1 - Welcome document
2 - Supportive Feedback
3 - Guidelines for interaction with others outside the meeting
4 - ASCA manual: "Survivor to Thriver"
This is the 21-step recovery guide that is covered in the meeting. It is not required but comes highly recommended. There is a free PDF version available at the Morris Center website, as well as a high-quality print version that can be ordered for $19.99.
