Recovery through Service
To serve means to render assistance, be of use, or help. Service, then, means assistance to an individual or a group. We help other D.A. members by attending meetings, listening, and sharing our own experiences. We help the group by performing tasks such as chairing or leading the meeting, being treasurer, or taking notes at a business meeting. In D.A. we learn to define service as giving to others what we have so generously been given.
We have found service to be essential to our recovery in Debtors Anonymous because no one we know has experienced sustained abstinence from incurring unsecured debt without performing service. For more information about service, please see the D.A. Service brochure or discuss with your own group.
