Getting sober can be hard, but having the right people around you can make all the difference. Alcoholics Anonymous is the oldest and largest alcohol support group in existence. It has been helping alcoholics get (and stay) sober for nearly 100 years since its creation in 1935.
Studies have shown that group-based recovery can significantly increase the chances of achieving sobriety. For this reason, AA is often included in many alcohol addiction programs. Millions of recovering alcoholics have found long-lasting success through these meetings, which offer a kind of support that is difficult to find anywhere else.
There are over 118,000 Alcoholics Anonymous groups around the world. To find a local AA meeting today you can search by city and day of the week. Can’t find one close enough? Consider online AA meetings which offer the same wonder community from the comfort of your own home.
