A new poster abstract titled, "Assessing Youth Participation in AA-Related Helping: Validity of the Service to Others in Sobriety (SOS) Questionnaire in an Adolescent Sample," was accepted for presentation at The Research Society on Alcoholism annual meeting. The results show the utility of the SOS in gauging levels of Alcoholics Anonymous-related Helping (AAH) participation. Identifying levels of AAH participation may enhance treatment planning, identify accessible service opportunities, and facilitate juveniles' community re-entry.
