"The Irrationality of Alcoholics Anonymous" looks at AA (and related treatment programs for alcohol and drug addiction) and asks tough questions about whether it works as well as many believe, and if there are better, more effective alternatives.  I talk with author Gabrielle Glaser about the challenges of reporting and writing about this controversial topic.

Gabrielle Glaser is an author and award-winning journalist who writes about issues of addiction and mental health. She specializes in long-form narrative and investigative writing, especially about social issues, health, and medicine. She has written for the New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, the Associated Press, The Economist, The Dallas Morning News, The Village Voice, and National Public Radio.   She is the author of three books, including her most recent work, "Her Best-Kept Secret."
