Earlier this year, a new book looks at 12 Step outcomes. It’s called, If You Work It It Works! The Science Behind 12 Step Recovery by psychologist and award winning author, Joe Nowinski PhD. It is a jargon-free look at how, 12 Step modality help alcoholics/addicts.
Recently a growing chorus of critics has questioned the science behind this model. In this book, Dr. Joseph Nowinski calls upon the latest research, as well as his own seminal Project MATCH study, to show why systematically working a Twelve Step program yields predictable and successful outcomes.
He discusses these in this interview.

    • and many others (the majority) have outside help in term of professional counselling, via places of worship, meditation centres, retreats etc etc so it may be better to say that people primarily do this with some of this. In the US there is a recent trend for many to go to 12 step as well as to other support groups – always good to keep an open mind. I find utility in many different approaches.
