Alcoholics Anonymous: Is it a Form of Addiction Treatment?

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an organization designed to help those struggling with alcoholism to stop drinking and maintain sobriety. Founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, the group was reported to have over 2 million members worldwide in 2015. And though AA is well known, and many members testify to its role in helping them, there is a great deal of debate among lay people and professionals about just how effective AA is.
