The Hope and Healing Center & Institute CEO Matthew Stanford Ph.D. and the Hope and Healing Center & Institute past Fellow Rev. Bill Wigmore BA collaborated to write a research article entitled “Two-Way Prayer: A Lost Tool for Practicing the 11th Step.”
Two Way Prayer formed an essential part of the Oxford Group and early Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) spiritual practices. Pioneer AA members considered it more essential for recovery than attendance at meetings. However, it was gradually lost as a component of the modern 12-step programs. This study found significant benefits among youth and adults engaged in a peer-support group for drug and alcohol recovery using a contemporary form of the practice.
The article appeared in Alcoholism Treatment Quarterly, Volume 35, 2017 – Issue 1.
