Page 177. " Higher Power who I choose to call God "

Most twelve-step programs teach a belief in God or, for atheists, a Higher Power. One such program is, of course, Alcoholics Anonymous, of which Don Gately and several other Ennet House residents are members. A Higher Power is always perceived as being 'greater' than the individual, and can be anything as long as it is generally thought of as caring and loving. Thus, examples of a Higher Power include Nature, consciousness, existential freedom, God, science and Buddha.
