What Promotes Wisdom in 12-Step Recovery?

DiGangi, J.A., et al. (2014). What Promotes Wisdom in 12-Step Recovery?Journal of Groups in Addiction & Recovery Volume 9, Issue 1, 2014

Abstract: Research investigations on 12-step groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) have addressed a number of resources associated with 12-step recovery. However, little is known about the role of wisdom and whether aspects of 12-step participation might increase this resource among 12-step members. An exploratory analysis revealed that participants who reported having a “spiritual awakening” and considered themselves “members” of 12-step groups reported significantly higher levels of wisdom. Twelve-step meeting attendance was not significantly related to wisdom scores. Findings suggest certain aspects of 12-step involvement are associated with wisdom and may play a role in substance abuse recovery.
