Dear ESSAY readers,

A good deal of us came in through professionals of various kinds, whether they were therapists, helpline workers, psychiatrists, life coaches, or clergy members. The AA Big Book gives a clear recommendation not to disregard human health measures: “God has abundantly supplied this world with fine doctors, psychologists, and practitioners of various kinds. Do not hesitate to take your health problems to such persons.” (AA 133) On the same page, it adds: “Their services are often indispensable in treating a newcomer and in following his case afterward.” In this regard, we see that many of us start making use of their services after being for some time in SA and finding out we need professional help on our underlying traumas and personality disorders.
