Sexual minority (e.g., gay, lesbian, bisexual identified) individuals experience alcohol use disorder at much higher rates than individuals identifying as heterosexual. While Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) serves as the most common source of recovery support for alcohol-related problems in the United States, relatively little is known about sexual minority involvement in AA, including rates and predictors of AA attendance, which has important implications for how we think about alcohol use disorder care for this population. In this study, rates of AA attendance across sexual orientations were explored, as well as the factors associated with AA attendance among sexual minorities.
