Spirituality: The Key to Recovery from Alcoholism.
Warfield, Robert D.; Goldstein, Marc B.
Counseling and Values, v40 n3 p196-205 Apr 1996
Suggests that a condition of "negative spirituality" underlies and sustains alcoholism and perhaps all addictions. Argues that a secure recovery is not possible unless a "spiritual awakening," such as envisioned by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), is achieved. A broadly applicable conceptual model of spirituality is inferred from the AA 12-step rehabilitation program. (RJM)
