This is the first study of the 12-step group filmed by a producer outside the AA organization.
What began as a meeting between two desperate strangers in 1935 has grown into a worldwide fellowship of at least two million people. But how much is hoax and hype, and how much is promise and salvation?
This eye-opening INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM is the first-ever look at Alcoholics Anonymous filmed by a producer outside the organization's umbrella. It goes behind closed doors to show the outside world what goes on in these meetings, the combination of dogma, procedure and community support that has transformed so many lives. INSIDE ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS also reveals the operations of the AA General Services Office, the overseeing body that assists the fellowship worldwide. On-camera interviews with AA "old-timers and " AA's managing director, as well as leading national health authorities and the organization's outspoken critics, answer questions never before asked.
Explore the myth, challenge the hype, and meet those who have found salvation--twelve steps at a time.
