Thesis title: Community-Based Recovery? Investigating Alcoholics Anonymous

Supervisors: Niels BUUS , Paul RHODES

Thesis abstract:

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an independent intervention organisation for individuals who suffer from alcohol addiction. Since its conception in the 1930s, AA has received recognition for its membership size, longevity, global dispersion, and adaptation to other addictive substances and processes. Unlike the empirically supported treatments that are delivered by clinicians, which aim primarily to reduce specific, pathological symptoms, AA claims to aim beyond symptom reduction (i.e. reduced alcohol abuse) and additionally generate changes in individuals’ mental, emotional and interpersonal functioning. This research will begin with the first qualitative systematic review conducted in the field of AA.
