Alcohol Treatment Methods (continued)
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Lifering Secular Recovery, Rational Recovery (RR), Women for Sobriety and Smart Recovery are just some of the groups which seek to treat alcholism and other excessive drinking issues. They use behavioral modification techniques in order for participants to become sober.
The traditional 12 step approach of Alcoholics Anonymous
(AA) is still the most widely followed program dealing with alcoholism and
the goals of total abstinence. AA chapters can be found in almost every
community throughout the United States.
Alternatives to the traditional 12 step program also are available.
Recovery is an international organization which offers an alternative
non-12 step approach towards sobriety and abstinence. The main difference
between AA and Smart Recovery is that Smart Recovery does not use religion
or spirituality in its approach to abstinence. This is left to the
discretion of the individual.
Smart Recovery views alcohol dependence as a
bad habit that should be dealt with by utilizing cognitive behavioral
therapy and scientific research.
Rational Recovery (RR) is also an alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous
This program can be accessed via the internet as well as through
books, videos and lectures. RR discourages recovery groups and encourages
the individual to make a firm commitment to abstain following proven
techniques. RR does not consider alcohol abuse as a disease but rather as
bad voluntary behavior. The emphasis is on the individual assuming
responsibility for his actions.
LifeRing Secular Recovery
LifeRing Secular Recovery is another alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous.
This network of support groups is for recovering alcoholics. Its organized
meetings are directed toward achieving sobriety, secularity and self-help. The group is neutral on religion and its relationship to sobriety. The
individual is encouraged to utilize self reliance as a tool towards total
Women For Sobriety
Women for Sobriety is a support group for alcoholic women. The goal of
this support group is to increase self-esteem among recovering alcoholic
women. This organization also discourages the use of tobacco, sugar and
caffeine. The website link is www.womenforsobriety.org. The group has
chat rooms online at MSN and AOL.
Many alcohol treatment centers are utilizing modern scientific research in
addition to the "talk" therapy espoused by support groups. This research includes use of the pharmaceuticals discussed elsewhere on this web site.
