The professor said: “I do not believe the 12 step programme is a treatemnt for alcohol abuse.” Ok. The professor’s opinion? Seems to be.
So I asked the following question of the esteemed professor: “What, in your opinion, is AA/12 step if not, in your opinion, a treatment for alcohol abuse?”
The Prof’s response: “I don't have the answer to that.” Ok. Is the prof dodging the question? Seems to be.
So if the 12 steps are not a "treatment program" for alcohol abuse, What are they?
