The Brazilian fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous has made a big win with the hiring of a Brazilian specialist in chemical dependency for the next twelve months who will focus on the teaching of Alcoholics Anonymous rituals and ceremonies at the Tenda El-Shaddai camps. The AA program is promoted and enabled by the General Service Office of Alcoholics Anonymous called the Junta De Servicos Gerais De A. A. at Caixa Postal 580, Sao Paulo, Brazil 01060-970 , Brazil (i.e. http://www.alcoolicosanonimos.org.br/) and is listed by Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. (AAWS) located at the Interchurch Center in New York (i.e. http://www.aa.org/lang/en/aa_international.cfm?country=Brazil&origpage=31). The program at Tenda El-Shaddai will be using the Religious and Biblical teaching methods of Bill Wilson worship.
Tenda El-Shaddai implements Alcoholics Anonymous program 27 August 2012
Drug rehabilitation institution Tenda El-Shaddai will begin implementing Alcoholics Anonymous sessions this Monday, August 27, at its installations in Santa Cruz (Santiago island). The sessions will be guided by a Brazilian specialist in chemical dependency for the next twelve months. The specialist, who has had extensive experience in the Mara Project, in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro, will prepare internees at the Tenda El-Shaddai camps to guide the sessions inside and outside of the institution in the future.
“Protecting and restoring lives” is the name of the project that will begin today at Tenda El-Shaddai, seeking not only to help drug addicts and alcoholics recover, but also to capacitate them to help others pull themselves out of this situation in which they themselves have been.
“The program will be developed based on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, to which a Biblical Foundation will be added,” says Tenda El-Shaddai director Honório Fragata, adding that “they have to know how to identify their problems, be they with alcohol, drugs, or violence, and to know how to resolve them. And by acquiring others’ experiences, they can have a healthy life far removed from these ills.”
