Background: A Brief History of Treatment and More Recent Challenges Modern approaches to the treatment of alcoholism in the United States can be traced to the pioneering work of Drs. William Silkworth and Edward Jellinek, as well as the networking which occurred in the context of the so-called "Oxford Groups" so-named by a group of Oxford alumni who had aligned themselves with the philosophy of Frank Buchman. The indirect association of the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous with these groups played a role in the establishment of AA in 1935. (Kurtz 1979) A keystone of AA was the understanding of alcoholism as an illness amenable to interventions free of moral judgment.
