Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is a long-standing self-help organization for people who want to stop drinking or using other drugs. AA uses a 12-step program based on a spiritual connection to a higher power (such as God) to help people overcome their addictions. Although the program’s success has not been validated by scientific study, it has helped many people.
Meetings are available in most communities at various times. Meetings can be “open” (for the person and his or her family) or “closed” (for the person only). Special groups for women, teens, and gay people are available in some areas. Phone numbers for local offices are listed in local area phone books, and information can also be found online at www.aa.org.
Appalacian Ohio Intergroup Office is the Southern-Ohio sub-group. www.aoio.org
