Alcohol addiction has become a major public health concern in the United States and other countries in the world. It contributes to the deaths of thousands of Americans and costs the economy billions of dollars each year. Several treatments have been used to help curb the epidemic. One of the dominant forms of treatment is Alcoholics Anonymous or AA. The group support therapy has a long history of success in helping people to fully recover from alcohol addiction. Founded way back in the 1930s, AA is the oldest group support organization in the world. With over one hundred thousand groups and one million-plus members worldwide, it is also the most popular and largest. One of the primary reasons for AA’s popularity is its now famous ‘Twelve Steps’ and ‘Twelve Traditions’ methods. The renowned ‘Twelve Steps’ serves as the primary guide for AA members. While the ‘Twelve Traditions’ govern how AA groups should operate and provide rules they must follow. Many other support groups have taken inspiration from the ‘Twelve Steps’ and have incorporated them into the theme of their group.
