Harper’s Magazine - Alcoholics Anonymous: Cult or Cure? - February 1963
“Alcoholics Anonymous: Cult or Cure?” by Arthur Cain in the February 1963 issue of Harper’s Magazine. The article is on pages 48-52.
Cain claims that AA, although operating on the basis of a useful idea, has turned into a dogmatic religious movement and is a hinder an end to research, psychiatry, and many alcoholics who need a different kind of help. He shows how AA is in the almost complete control of public education on alcoholism. This is the first anti-AA article to appear in a popular magazine.
