It was once taken for granted that peer-assisted groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous had no “real” value in recovery from addiction. More recently, evidence-based medicine is recognizing a spiritual component in healing—especially when it comes to addiction. The newest edition of Recent Developments in Alcoholism reflects this change by focusing on the 12-step model of recovery as well as mindfulness meditation and other spiritually oriented activity. More than thirty contributors bring together historical background, research findings, and clinical wisdom to analyze the compatibility of professional treatment and nonprofessional support, day-to-day concepts of relapse prevention, the value of community building in recovery, and much more. Among the topics covered: (1) How and why 12-step groups work. (2) The impact of the spiritual on mainstream treatment. (3) The impact of AA on other nonprofessional recovery programs. (4) AA outcomes for special populations. (5) Facilitating involvement in 12-step programs. (6) Methods for measuring religiousness and spirituality in alcohol research. Whether one is referring clients to 12-step programs or seeking to better understand the process, this is a unique resource for clinicians and social workers. Developmental psychologists, too, will find Volume 18—Research on Alcoholics Anonymous and Spirituality in Addiction Recovery a worthy successor to the series.

Ursprünglich 1939 in den USA als ‚Alcoholics Anonymous‘ erschienen, wurde der Titel auch zum Namensgeber für die Gemeinschaft ‚Anonyme Alkoholiker‘. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt umfasste die AA-Gemeinschaft 100 Mitglieder. Dieser Band hat dazu beigetragen, dass jetzt weltweit über 2 Millionen sagen, dass sie AA-Mitglied sind. In vier Auflagen haben seither mehr als 30 Millionen Exemplare des ‚Big Book‘ ihre Leser gefunden. 1963 erschien die deutsche Erstausgabe unter dem Titel ‚Anonyme Alkoholiker‘, bekannt als ‚Blaues Buch’ – nach der Farbe des Einbands. Mehrere Auflagen sind inzwischen erschienen. Der Basistext auf den Seiten 1-192 blieb als Fundament der Genesung für die Anonymen Alkoholiker bis heute unverändert. Die Geschichten der ‚Pioniere von AA‘ verbinden den Leser mit den historischen Wurzeln der AA-Gemeinschaft und zeigen zusammen mit den 2009 neu eingefügten zeitnahen deutschsprachigen Lebensgeschichten, wie Alkoholiker noch heute mithilfe des vorgeschlagenen Genesungsprogramms nüchtern werden. Diese vorliegende revidierte Auflage 2016 entspricht der aktuellen amerikanischen Ausgabe. Dies ist die einzige von ‚A.A. World Services, Inc.‘ autorisierte E-Book-Version des Buches ‚Anonyme Alkoholiker‘.

A historical and comparative analysis of the Icelandic AA movement which seeks to explain its particular, and widespread success in Iceland despite formidable obstacles and paradoxical conditions. Not only is anonymity, one of AA's basic organizational principles, impossible in a society as small as Iceland, but the country's strong alcoholism treatment system has required a rethinking of AA's role, a move from being a central dynamic force in getting sober to an interactive supporting force in staying sober. Among the topics discussed in this book are the history, structure and transformation of the movement in Iceland, ad its relations and interactions with other groups, treatment programs and society as a whole.

Affiliation with Alcoholics Anonymous parallels religious conversion, according to David R. Rudy in this timely study of the most famous self-help organization in the world. Drinkers who commit themselves to Alcoholics Anonymous embrace the radically different life-style, the altered world of the convert. To understand this conversion and, more important, to get a grip on the even deeper mystery of alcoholism itself, Rudy sought to answer these three questions: What processes are involved in becoming alcoholic? How does the alcoholic affiliate with, and become committed to, A. A.’s belief system? What is the relation­ship between the world of A. A. members and that constructed by alcohologists? Rudy establishes the history and structure of A. A. and examines the organization’s relationship to dominant sociological models, theories, and definitions of alcoholism.

Pioneer Stories in Alcoholics Anonymous: God's Role in Recovery Confirmed! by Dick B. and Ken B. presents many quotations from the 29 personal stories included in the first edition of Alcoholics Anonymous. Those stories by many of A.A.'s pioneers testify to roles played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in early A.A.'s astonishing successes with "medically-incurable" alcoholics.
