Victor Garcia, anthropologist and director of the Mid-Atlantic Addiction Research and Training Institute, gave a presentation on his NIH-funded research on AA-based therapies and transnational labor migration at the Prevention Research Center at Berkeley, California, in January 2013.

Garcia’s talk centered on the migrants’ use of traditional Alcoholics Anonymous groups and other AA-based groups, such as 24-hour groups—or anexos, as they are known in Mexico—to treat their alcohol and drug abuse.
