Aim. To identify the state of the art of spirituality and the possible relationships with alcohol consumption in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Method. Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Review was used. DeCS and Mesh descriptors were included as search strategy in all possible combinations, as well as truncation and boolean operators: Spirituality, Alcohol Consumption and Alcoholics Anonymous.
