ABSTRACT
The author, a sexologist in recovery from alcoholism, was employed by the city government of an eastern metropolis where she inaugurated a program of group therapy called Family Focus. Forty-three African American women volunteered to meet daily for three-hour group therapy. Participants started each therapy group with an Alcoholics Anonymous meetingand closed with discussions of sexuality and spirituality guided by the author. Participants maintained abstinence for over four months until the program was administratively disbanded. Proof of abstinence came from daily urine analyses, including weekends when no theraty groups were held.
