I read an old issue of Grapevine today that had a section on "Singleness of purpose" Which basically, means that in meetings we don't identify as 'anda'(I'm and alcoholic anda addict..etc) and that we only address the issue of drinking alcoholicly and refrain from talking about other substances/addictions. But... many of us are dually addicted or are assigned to attend meetings as a reslut of consequences regardless of our DOC. That being said, I wonder what you all have to say on the matter? Should the arms of AA extend to include all who suffer addiction or do you think it's important to keep each addiction seperate. Yes, there are other 12 Step "special purpose" programs, but it has been argued that there is more succesful recovery in the rooms of AA....What say you?
