The results of our 12Care Mentoring have been remarkable.
The vast majority – up to 90% – of 12Care participants are still clean and sober after one year. Here is an actual letter from a 12Care client addressed to one of our recovery mentors.
“As I near my one year anniversary in sobriety, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your good service, when you came to Singapore to guide me back into the real world after being in treatment. Your guidance over a range of concerns was of great comfort and considerable value to both myself and my family. Having left the rehab center as a newly minted member of the sober fraternity, I very much needed a mentor to help me get connected to AA and overcome the many fears that men in early sobriety face. You sir, served the role of mentor with distinction. Even today, my mates in AA remember with fondness your attendance in the rooms (and outdoor cafes), chuckling at your good shares and humor.
“While I had some experience in AA prior to going to rehab, it was with your assistance that I was able to establish a real connection with my local group that has since expanded to a network of AA friends in Beijing, Hong Kong, London, the US and Indonesia. My friends in rehab have had something of a mixed record of success since they re-entered the real world. Those that availed themselves of the considerable resources around AA including working with people such as yourself have thrived. While those who have tried to go it alone have inevitably struggled. I think the strongest testament for the value of the work that you do is seen in the great progress I have made in sobriety thanks in part to your efforts.
“One of my favorite passages in the Big Book (which incidentally I am reading on my iPad while on a flight thanks to a tip from you) is the promises, which talks about the progress and bright hope that lies ahead for those that are painstaking when it comes to their early development and willing to work in their sobriety. Well the promises have come true for me and the future is indeed bright. I thank you for your painstaking efforts to help me get on my path of spiritual progress and a better life.”
Your friend, GK, Singapore
