Excellent question. This seems to be dramatic license taken, to give more depth toward the plot line than to have an accurate portrayal of drunk driving in the 60s. (A la "Mad Men" when Don had a much more historically accurate account of his drunk driving arrest"slap on the wrist," a fine anc walking away.)

I haven't been able to actually find the precedence for court-ordered AA, but it seems to have begun in the 80s. Could cases have occurred before? Sure, but I can't find them, and it it being featured in "Masters of Sex" does not seem to jive with the times at all.
