Alcoholics Anonymous: One Treatment Program to Rule them All?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Treatment programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) are essential in aiding individuals who feel as though they cannot face their substance abuse problems on their own. However, this article will discuss the notion that AA style
programs are not a one-size-fits-all medium of treatment. It will do this by exploring the concept that factors such as an individual’s personality, social capabilities, mental health, or physical problems, can all negatively impact on a
small percentage of the population who seek assistance from AA style programs. Therefore, it is crucial that those who do not complete the programs are not left by the wayside. Finally, this article will explore the importance that programs akin to AA have made and the sustained efforts to further aid those individuals who do not find the AA program suitable.
