Identification with mainstream culture and preference for alternative alcohol treatment approaches.
Although various treatment approaches are available for alcohol problems, less than 25% of individuals with alcohol use disorders obtain treatment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate interest in attending alternative alcohol treatments, such as meditation and acupuncture, compared to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A community sample of 156 adult participants concerned about their drinking were recruited through flyers and newspaper advertisements to complete a Web-based survey assessing identification with mainstream culture, sexual identity, and likelihood to attend alternative alcohol treatments. Participants reported higher likelihood of attending alternative treatments as compared to AA, and lesbian, gay, and bisexual participants (28.2% of the sample) were more likely to attend alternative treatments than heterosexual participants. A series of regression analyses were conducted to test whether the relationship between sexual identity and likelihood to attend alternative treatments was mediated by identification with mainstream culture. Participants who were less strongly identified with mainstream culture, regardless of sexual identity, reported higher likelihood of attending alternative treatments. These findings highlight that, for certain subgroups of the population, alternative treatments for alcohol misuse are appealing and suggest the need for future research testing the efficacy of alternative treatments for alcohol problems.

If so, then possibly assistance may be warranted.
Actually, the existence of spiders is critical to our own. Indeed, spiders perform several environmentally critical functions. In fact, at any one time there are spiders, which may be hidden from our awareness yet are serving a necessary...
Without stress we would have very little motivation. We are constantly assessing the balance between our capabilities and perceived difficulties of the challenges that we face every day. When we are inspired, we are motivated to show that our capabilities clearly outweigh the obstacles in front of us. However, even if we are successful, prolonged periods of stress can have its toll. This is why we need to achieve as much balance in life as possible. On the other hand, there are times that the things that stress us may seem to exceed our capabilities to handle them. Likewise, this adds to the...
Self-esteem, which is synonymous with self worth, is thought by many to refer to a combination of beliefs and values. The way I look at it, essentially self worth is directly affected by one's ability to cope and overcome the challenges in life. If you feel like you have sufficient resources in terms of finances and/or talents and abilities, you may feel like there's not anything that you can't handle. However, if those challenges are deemed to exceed your abilities, then quickly or increasingly over time you will find that your feelings of self-worth may diminish. Over time this may have a...
