21 Steps Program by Dr. Leo Fishbeck
This 21 step program was created as an alternative to the 12 steps program that people often have issues with. It was written by Reverend Dr. Leo Fishbeck who was a minister of the Science of Mind Church and Centers for Positive Living in both Los Angeles and San Diego for over 40 years. He is also the author of Sing Your Song for All You’re Worth: A Book on Living Abundantly for the Young at Heart.

- Honestly own all of my feelings and give consent to them.
- Be willing at all times to surrender to my Higher Power when tempted to indulge in destructive behavior.
- Understand the limitations of will power and let my higher power support me as I practice delaying instant gratification long enough to awaken my ability to make the choices that support my health and well being.
