The History of Alcoholics Anonymous 
with Wally P.-noted Archivist, Historian and Author


These three professionally recorded, one-hour, digital DVDs are the culmination of ten years of research, hundreds of interviews with Twelve-Step program pioneers and old-timers, numerous archival presentations throughout the United States and Canada, and three books on the miraculous spiritual roots and initial success of the "original Twelve-Step program of the 1940's that produced a 50-75% recovery rate from alcoholism.

These DVDs are ideal for use by Treatment Centers, Halfway Houses, Aftercare Facilities and Twelve-Step Meetings and Groups to familiarize newcomers with the miraculous and highly successful early days of the "original" Twelve-Step program.
