One thought on “What is the success rate of AA?

  1. Arti says:

    a few addiction specialists have claimed that AA has a 5 to 10 percent success rate. In addition, estimates say that 40 to 60 percent of people relapse from sobriety within a year of treatment, similar to relapse rates from other chronic conditions, which include diabetes or asthma. It’s difficult to determine the success rate of programs which include Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous largely because they’re anonymous. If people haven’t found success with 12-step programs or don’t want to use them, they still have a number of alternatives. People who want the fellowship and support of a sobriety group may want to join SMART Recovery, Women for Sobriety, or SOS (Secular Organizations for Sobriety).
