What Is Back To Basics In Alcoholics Anonymous?

If you or someone you love is dependent on alcohol, you may feel hopeless. Perhaps the person has tried to quit, but relapsed. Before you give up, realize that it sometimes takes several attempts to achieve sobriety. The key is not to give up. One program that can help is a back-to-basics approach of Alcoholics Anonymous. Many have turned to this method because things have changed since that institution was founded in 1935. As time passed and the organization expanded, many local groups strayed from the original principles of A.A. In some cases, this has led to groups becoming more like social clubs. That was not the original purpose. The reality is that attaining sobriety can be hard and these challenges need to be addressed.
