How EHA Works


Emotional Health Anonymous is based on the same 12 steps as Alcoholics Anonymous only adapted to people who suffer from emotional problems not related to substance abuse. Many of us were driven into EHA by depression, severe anxiety, anger brought on by chronic resentment along with many other debilitating emotional symptoms. By coming back on a regular basis to EHA meetings, we become familiar with the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions on which our fellowship is based. Our program is based solely on the “Big Book” of Alcoholics Anonymous. Our belief is that “if it works, don’t fix it”. The Big Book is just as applicable to people like ourselves as it is to the alcoholic. We are living proof of that as is illustrated in the “Our Stories” section of our website.

Anonymity is practiced by our fellowship as it is laid out in the twelfth tradition – “Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.”
