Your Journey to Self-Help Recovery Starts Here: Unveiling AA Meetings

Ready to Take the First Step on Your Self-Help Recovery Journey?

Finding the support you need is within reach. Here are some resources to help you get started:

Alcoholics Anonymous:

  • Official Website: This website provides a searchable directory of meetings all over the world: https://www.aa.org/

  • National AA Hotline: Call 1-212-870-2442 for more information and support. (These people do not judge you, they were probably in your shoes not too long ago.)

Beyond AA Meetings: Additional Resources

AA meetings are a fantastic starting point, but there are many other resources available to support your journey:

  • National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA): This website from the National Institutes of Health provides a wealth of information on alcohol use disorder, treatment options, and research: https://www.niaaa.nih.gov/

  • Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA): SAMHSA offers a national helpline (1-800-662-HELP) and resources for finding treatment facilities: https://www.samhsa.gov/

  • Alcoholics Anonymous Success Stories: While anonymity is a core principle, many inspiring stories of overcoming addiction through AA can be found online. Be sure to choose reputable sources, such as AA websites or forums.

Remember: Recovery is a marathon, not a sprint. There will be ups and downs, but with support and resources, you can achieve lasting sobriety. AA offers a supportive community where you can find encouragement, hope, and the strength to move forward.

Take that first step today. You are not alone!
