seminar_sm.jpg (9451 bytes)
During 2016 and 2017 Wally P. will be conducting seminars and workshops throughout 
the United States and around the world.

The Back to Basics Alcoholics Anonymous Beginners' Meetings were first taped during November - December, 1995 in San Manual, AZ. On four successive Friday nights, the entire Copper Valley Group took the Twelve Steps as part of their regularly scheduled A.A. meeting. Tapes of this first Back to Basics program are still available from Smile, God Loves You Tapes at (800) 523-1566.

From that humble beginning, Back to Basics has grown dramatically and the four one-hour sessions have been presented at various locations throughout the United States, Canada, and around the world.


The Back to Basics Not-For-Profit Foundation Needs your Help!

If Back to Basics has saved your life, we ask that you now consider saving Back to Basics' life.  As has been the case for the past 15 years, we continue to operate at a deficit.  Please consider helping us out, so we can expand our outreach to additional prisons, half-way houses, and recovery centers throughout the United States, Canada and around the world.
