Why The Ties That Bind Us? It’s taken from literature from one of the 12 Step programs: “The ties that bind us together are stronger than those that would tear us apart.”

What about the 11th Tradition? “Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio and film.” This is an important part of all 12 Step fellowships, which is why we won’t be identifying the specific fellowships, if any, to which our interview subjects belong. However, their discussion of their own recovery and sobriety, we feel, falls under the purview of “attraction,” and we’re honored they’ve agreed to allow us to tell their stories.
