Time in residential care and participation in Alcoholics Anonymous as predictors of continued sobriety

This follow-up study located 158 of 274 residents served over 5 yr in Rockdale House, a residential community program in Conyers, Georgia, USA. Hypothesized predictors of successful outcome were continued participation in Alcoholics Anonymous [AA] after discharge and number of days in residence. Responses by ex-residents showed a significant relationship between time in residence and participation in AA for those reporting continued sobriety.
