ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to find out various variables that affect the recovery of alcoholic addicts participating in A.A. meetings and compare the effects of these variables. In this study, a purposive sampling method was applied to recruit the sample A.A. participants in South Korea and the data for 554 participants were analyzed. The results of the analysis revealed that their general characteristics including family support, occupation, and educational background had positive effects on the recovery as a holistic change in the alcoholics’ life and its sub-factors such as physical, social and mental recovery. In addition, A.A. commitment had a great influence on recovery, along with the sense of self-efficacy and self-esteem. Based on the results of this study, theoretical and practical implications were discussed for improving the recovery of alcoholics, as well as specific practical measures such as recurrence prevention programs, stress management and psychological support, family support and vocational rehabilitation.
