These month-long classes are lead and sponsored by recovered members of MAA. There are several of these classes going on at different times of the month both in North America and in Europe/Middle East. These classes are designed to help members get sober and stay sober from media addition by fasting together and taking all twelve steps during this fast, thus staying ahead of the disease. Please use the contact form below to be put on the waiting list for the next round of classes.

Our purpose for the Back to Basics sessions are to provide a safe, structured environment where participants learn the principles of recovery, take the Twelve Steps, and have a life-changing spiritual awakening.  

We have both closed and open Back to Basic meetings. The closed meetings are lead by recovered members who sponsor each group. Those who join these meetings make a commitment to fast from media for a full month while working the steps with an assigned sponsor. If members are interested in joining this kind of daily support with a closed-committed group and sponsor, please use the contact form below to be placed on the waiting list.

Closed meetings need a code to obtain access.

The open Back to Basics meetings are provided for those who would prefer to do these sessions alone or with a action partner. If you who are waiting to get into the closed Back to Basic groups you can go through the Open Back to Basics with another person who wants to recover from media addiction.

IMPORTANT DISTINCTION: The Back to Basic Closed Classes are NOT a part of Media Addicts Anonymous. B2B are lead by recovered members of Media Addicts Anonymous who teach and run the closed meetings. B2B groups do have commitments and policies that help the group stay in integrity. There are requirements for those who join those groups. In the Media Addicts Anonymous meetings, the only requirement is the sincere desire to stop compulsively using media.
