The Fourth Step is an action step and begins the growth part of our journey. It is a cleansing of the mind and spirit.
Our residents eagerly await approval of this Step as it shows they have been making excellent progress and are ready to sincerely face their true selves.
We put our selves under the microscope to expand on our understanding of who we are. We remove the obstacles that have prevented us from fully knowing ourselves and truthfully acknowledging our deepest feelings about life.
Step Four helps us to clearly see where our weaknesses are, and where we have strength.
Our strengths appear in behaviour that has positive effects on us as well as on others.
Our weaknesses are revealed in behavior that is destructive to ourselves and others.
