AA Influence on Half-Way Houses or Transitional Living Residences
According to Wikipedia , In 1934 a man known as Bill W.(William Griffith Wilson, 1895–1971), self admitted himself to a hospital for help with his drinking problem. He then became associated with the Oxford Group and shortly after that met Dr. Bob Smith (doctor) (Robert Holbrook Smith, M.D, 1879–1950) who too was a member of the Oxford Group. Together they formed the organization known as Alcoholics Anonymous with its concepts set on the Spiritual matters and on scripture (ref.http://www.dickb.com/index.shtml) with basic program design from the Oxford Group. This program was designed to help the individual “admit” and “act” to their drinking problem. With group support and selection of an individual “Recovery Sponsor” one might come to sobriety. The two designed the A.A. Big Book (ref. Big Book Online: http://www.recovery.org/aa/bigbook/ww/ to provide “standards” for recovery. Through it one can establish a path to walk on toward finding God and sobriety. The only major revision made to the original text is that the individual must come to an understanding of God, as they know Him, so as to develop the Spiritual relationship and surrender to His will. Within the Big Book are personal stories and testimonies of a variety of personalities and social standings to show that the disease is not a respecter of persons, status, gender, or race/ethnicity.
Bill W. would bring “drunks” to his own home and help them sober up. Dr. Bob would use a strong spiritual approach through hospital admissions. The A.A.”12 step program” was (and is) the standard for not only Alcohol recovery groups and meetings but it began to gain acceptance in the medical and mental health fields and today other addiction programs such as Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous and man other groups have adopted the 12 Step approach. The standards established by the early A.A. members are still the foundation of most transitional living and other addiction recovery groups.
