Alcoholics Anonymous is a large organization that tries to help break those that are addicted to alcohol of their addiction. Although AA (as Alcoholics Anonymous is frequently referred to) has helped many decrease their dependence on alcohol, many conservative religious groups have subjected some of their methodology to criticism because they depend so much on modern psychological methods which are antithetical to Scripture^[ _citation\ needed_]^. Instead of appealing to the True and Living God, members of AA are often asked to find a "higher power", which may even be as mundane an item as a watch. This resembles "exchanging the glory of the incorruptible God" for a materialistic idol.
