Abstract

Alcohol is one of the most commonly used psychoactive drugs in the world. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) attendance is an important predictor of improved Quality of life, such as abstinence, among persons with alcohol use disorders. The purpose of the study was to assess the difference in the Quality of life (QOL) of clients with Alcoholic Dependence Syndrome (ADS) attending and not attending Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) group meetings. A comparative survey design was used in 100 samples. The statistical analysis of data revealed that there is significant difference in the Quality of life of clients with ADS attending and not attending AA group meetings (t value= 7.323 and p value+0.01)
