NEEDHAM, Massachusetts, April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/. Most people incur debt at various points in their lives. For some, unsecured debt - debt not secured by some form of collateral such as a house or car—becomes an addictive and unmanageable part of their lives. Debtors Anonymous (D.A.) offers hope for people whose use of unsecured debt causes problems and suffering in their lives and the lives of others.
Such debting can cripple and ruin someone's life. For the compulsive debtor, debt is like alcohol for the alcoholic, food for the compulsive eater, and gambling for the compulsive gambler.
Based upon the Twelve-Step principles of Alcoholics Anonymous, the D.A. program has helped thousands find a new way of living that offers recovery from compulsive debting and hope for a healthier, happier, more prosperous life.
Forty years ago this April, a handful of debtors began meeting in New York City. Together, they found a solution to the pressures of compulsive debting. Since then, the Fellowship of D.A. has grown to some 500 registered meetings worldwide.
On April 15, 2016, members worldwide will celebrate the founding and growth of the Fellowship. Festivities will range from small group meetings and international phone meetings to large gatherings for hundreds of debtors.
