Abstract: This article discusses a longer term treatment program that integrates psychodynamically oriented psychotherapy with a 12-step component. Specific issues that are addressed include the theoretical dilemma between the two models, advantages and disadvantages of adding a 12-step component, and how various subgroups of patients respond to the model. The clinical viability and preliminary impressions regarding outcome with this model will be offered.
