“Spiritual Involvement Intervention for Twelve Step Alcohol Recovery.” Dr. Brown will present the findings of the published research he has done on spirituality and Twelve Step programs for alcohol and substance abuse. While a variety of treatment options are available, the spiritual Twelve Step program remains a popular modality for alcohol and other substance abuse disorders.
Alcoholics Anonymous’ Twelve Step recovery is reliant upon spirituality to promote recovery. Dr. Brown, a family physician at Baylor College of Medicine at Baylor Clinic, will discuss published results of “Knowing Your Higher Power,” a seven-week behavioral spirituality intervention he developed and tested for implementation along with usual Twelve Step care.
