New Study Finds AA Promotes Long-Term Recovery

A recent study has found that participation in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) promotes long-term recovery. The study was conducted by Case Western Reserve and published in a special issue of Substance Abuse. Researchers found two factors to be especially important for lasting behavior change: 1) attending meetings and 2) helping others. They stated that helping others may be as simple as sharing one’s recovery story or as involved as filling a service position. To read the press release, click here.
