AA and it's clones have a 95% failure rate. This is unacceptable. It's also delusional to then call these programs a success. The author asked why and then went looking for the answers as to what's wrong with those programs and what might work that's not being included. The results are here. Information based in 21st century research rather than Victorian age imaginings. Best of all, it's free!!!! More
The recovery program of AA and it's clones proclaim a 5% success rate is a success. The author thinks differently given the continuing unneeded misery this brings. The author decided to ask why and go looking for some answers. This book is the result. It addresses where standard recovery methods encourage failure and provides additional information disregarded by AA that could greatly augment the success rate if implemented. Also discussed are other non-AA recovery programs and self help methods that have shown a higher success rate than AA so the reader has other options to try.
