Culture Care for European-American Women in an Alcoholics Anonymous Program. The purpose of this study was to explore the culture care needs of European-American women in an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program. In 1997, approximately $6.4 billion dollars was spent in the United States for the treatment of alcohol abuse. No studies were found that explored the culture care needs of Euro-American women actively involved in a 12-step program. The research question for this study was “What are the culture care needs of Euro-American substance-abusing woman in an Alcoholics Anonymous program?” Leininger’s (1991) theory of culture care diversity and universality was the theoretical framework used for this study. According to Leininger, providing care appropriate to cultural views is necessary to assist participants in regaining and maintaining their health/well-being. Four key participants, Euro-American women currently in an AA program, and six general participants, Euro-American women from the general population who had not abused substances were selected for this study. Leininger's (1991) qualitative ethnonursing research method was used in this study. The data were coded and verbatim descriptors were carefully analyzed to demonstrate recurrent patterns and three universal themes of culture care were discovered. Implications included that healthcare providers need to take the time to listen to Euro-American women’s concerns and address these concerns in conjunction with the woman’s input. Nurses need to assess the women for depression as they move through recovery for their substance abuse. Social structure factors of religious / spiritual / philosophical and cultural values were discovered to be essential to understand care for substance-dependent European-American women.
