12 STEPS
Debtors Anonymous offers a program of recovery that works. Those who wish to stop debting are encouraged to attend meetings, read D.A. literature, seek the advice of a program sponsor, and follow the 12 Steps of the Debtors Anonymous program.

12 TOOLS
Recovery from compulsive debting begins when we stop incurring new, unsecured debt, one day at a time.
Unsecured debt is any debt that is not backed up by some form of collateral, such as a house or other asset. Debtors Anonymous provides Tools to assist us in achieving recovery.

12 TRADITIONS
Practice of D.A.’s Traditions builds and maintains stable and healthy groups and a strong D.A. Fellowship.

12 PROMISES
Share our journey in recovering from compulsive debting. There is hope. In working D.A.’s Twelve Steps, we develop new ways of living. When we work D.A.’s Twelve Steps and use D.A.’s Tools, we begin to receive these gifts of the program.
