I need help modifying this query

DECLARE @END DATE = '12/01/2017'
DECLARE @Start DATE =DATEADD(month, -11, '12/01/2017')


;WITH _DateList([DATE]) AS(
SELECT @START
UNION ALL
SELECT DATES = DATEADD(MONTH,1,[DATE])   
 FROM _DateList 
 WHERE DATEADD(DAY,1,[DATE])<@END
)
SELECT DISTINCT 
        Yr                  =      YEAR(DATE)
       ,ID     =			RTRIM(e.ID)
       ,NumMonths    =      COUNT(*)
INTO #MemMonths
FROM  dbo.enrollkeys      e 
JOIN   program         p
       ON p.programid = e.programid
JOIN _DateList
       ON DATEADD(DAY,5,DATE) BETWEEN e.effdate AND e.termdate

GROUP BY RTRIM(e.ID), YEAR(DATE) 
OPTION (MAXRECURSION 2000)


SELECT * FROM  #MemMonths

I want is not year to show month/year and group by that. Also, I want to show only 12 months from the start date to the end date.

Change your declaration of @start and use @end instead
This way, when you change the declaration of end date, the start date will be 11 months earlier.
If you want twelve months, subtract 12
Or change and take away one year..
DECLARE @ENDDATE = '12/01/2017'
DECLARE @StartDATE =DATEADD(month, -12, @ENDDATE)

Change
GROUP BY RTRIM(e.ID), YEAR(DATE)
To group by by month rather than year.

A few little things to change...

The recursive part you are doing a dateadd(month,1... but looping for date add(day,1... and later joining to it with a dateadd(day,5... seems to be a little bit inconsistent and needs some attention.... I think that the recursive part could use day or month, so I defaulted to the common denominator / theme of month.

I understand why you were subtracting 11 - to keep it in the same year, but you cold also manage with a change to the where clause, it will end up counting the number of months correctly.... I will keep it at 11...

DECLARE @END DATE = '20171201'
DECLARE @Start DATE =DATEADD(month, -11, @end)


;WITH _DateList([DATE]) AS
( SELECT @START [DATE]
  UNION ALL
  SELECT DATEADD(month,1,[DATE])   
  FROM _DateList 
  WHERE [DATE]<=@END
)
 SELECT DISTINCT   -- the distinct shouldnt be needed here....
        Yr         =      YEAR([DATE])
       ,mth        =      MONTH([DATE])     
       ,ID         =      RTRIM(e.ID)
       ,NumMonths  =      COUNT(*)
 INTO #MemMonths
 FROM  dbo.enrollkeys e 
 JOIN  program p ON p.programid = e.programid
 JOIN _DateList d ON d.[DATE] BETWEEN e.effdate AND e.termdate

 GROUP BY RTRIM(e.ID), YEAR([DATE]),MONTH([Date]) 
 OPTION (MAXRECURSION 0)


SELECT * FROM  #MemMonths
