As an informal society of more than 2,000,000 recovered alcoholics in the United States, Canada and other countries: These men and women meet in local groups of different sizes.Data were collected through the life story (narrative) interview method and thematically analyzed. A socialist construction approach was used to access and construct meaning from the discourse commit from the members narratives of their experiences with alcohol and their attempts at rehabilitation.Alcohol dependence affects 10% to 15% of men and 3% to 8% of women at some point in their lifetime. This translates into a point prevalence of about 4% and 5% for alcohol dependence and abuse, respectively. Alarmingly it has been reported that 30% of the American populace engage in risky or unhealthy patterns, defined as at least five drinks per day or fifteen drinks per week for men, or at least four standard drinks per day or eight drinks per week for women. A standard drink in the U.S. is defined as a drink containing about 14 grams of pure alcohol, the content of alcohol in 12 ounces of beer,5 ounces of table wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof whiskey.The prevalence of alcohol dependence in primary care settings ranges from 20% to 36%, pointing to the medical comorbidity suffered by alcohol-dependent patients and the value of screening for the disorder.The goals of the study were to explore alcohol dependence patients history and treatment history. On the other hand also identify barriers and nature of barriers that limit the alcohol dependence patients treatment, reasons for not accessing treatment, and to interpret their experiences of treatment. .Narrative interviewing was used to construct through alcoholic dependence patients perspectives on their alcohol use and dependence.
