    Abstract

    Although attending Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings is associated with improvements in alcohol consumption and related problems, barriers to engagement persist, including negative perceptions by addiction professionals. The current project examined clinician (N = 64) attitudes to AA and other mutual aid (MA) groups before and after training. Following training, there were increases in knowledge and willingness to refer clients. A follow-up of 38 clinicians identified moderate increases in referrals to MA groups over the following month. Referral to mutual aid groups was predicted by how important clinicians perceived 12-Step groups to be, their satisfaction with the training and support from their agency.
