One difficulty with alcoholism treatment in the United States is that it is either costly or inferior. Publicly funded treatment relies heavily on group therapy in which alcoholics share their experiences and tell their current struggles. This often establishes a negative pattern the  and reinforces the destructive mindset rather than replacing negativity and destructiveness with a positive mindset and productive life choices.
