There can be no doubt that AA works.

The evidence is in, it has been studied, and the conclusion is beyond doubt. Someone might not like AA, but no one can deny the efficacy of AA and its 12 Steps.

Those of us in AA are not surprised. But we are pleased and thank Dr. Kelly and Cochrane Medical Review for their work.
