RinC is a recovery program for men and women rooted in the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous as they were first revealed to Bill W., Dr. Bob, Clarence S., and the other early rummies in December 1938, leading to a spiritual experience and miraculous cure for emotional disorders, including alcoholism, opioid addiction, binge eating, anger management, pornography, depression and unhealthy grief, as they are transformed through the renewing of their minds.
The 12 Steps of RinC are as written by A.A. co-founder Bill W., according to A.A. General Service Conference-approved literature. In particular, ‘PASS IT ON’; (New York, N.Y.: A.A. World Services, Inc., 1984), 198-99. and Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age (New York, N.Y.: A.A. World Services, Inc., 1957, 1985) 166-67.
Alexander (Alex) Bischoff, President Operation Savannah, Inc. speaks with artist Joyce Pike (OPAM) on the circumstances leading to her Spirit led decision to paint these 12 Parables, as they were originally told to the first disciples of Jesus.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to overcome an addiction or an emotional disorder. We believe in God as he is revealed to us by the Holy Spirit, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the same way Bill W.'s friend said in Bill's Story, "Why don't you choose your own conception of God", we welcome you whatever you believe. We ask that you open your mind to God's unconditional love as revealed to you through His Holy Spirit.
We are not doctors and we urge our members to seek help from medical professionals. We believe in God our Father, and the eternal healing power of prayer in the name of Jesus. Many of us have had a profound spiritual experience. We have been transformed and cured of what once seemed to be an incurable mental health condition.
Our hope is that our stories will be an example and an encouragement to those who are still suffering. Jesus calls us to go out into the world and to be His witnesses. We pray that we are always an example of His love in how we appear, speak and act. We are regular people, living regular lives, seeking to follow Jesus with all our mind, body, soul and strength.
We stand firmly on what Paul wrote to the Romans. "If you confess with your mouth that he is Lord, and believe in your heart that He was raised from the dead, His promise to you is eternal life." Romans 10: 9-10 ESV
We look forward to hearing from you!
