People trying to manage a substance misuse problem have long been recommended to attend self-help meetings, but they may wonder just how big an impact this will have on their success in stopping using.
In an 8-year-long study finally published in 2008, researchers examined the relationship between the number of AA meetings that people attended each week and the percentage of days of abstinence they achieved ( PDA ).
