Alcoholics Anonymous - Long Tradition of Successful Sobriety

Alcoholics Anonymous (or AA) was founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, two men from different parts of the United States with lifelong alcohol addiction in common. The program was formalized in 1939 with the publication of the book, Alcoholics Anonymous. Also referred to as the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous outlines a 12-step program that encompasses the admission of alcoholism, compilation of a moral inventory, making restitution, a commitment to meetings, helping other alcoholics and for some, a commitment to prayer.

Countless alcoholics have been helped throughout the years, many of whom now begin their recovery with an online search for the popular phrase “alcoholics anonymous”. Search frequency research reveals the overwhelming popularity of this particular program of alcohol addiction recovery.
