What are AA Meetings?
Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA for short, is a type of support group based on the principles of the 12-Steps. Meetings consist of members sitting together and sharing their personal experiences in recovery, along with reading literature about the AA method. There may also be prayer and the reciting of affirmations.
Are AA Meetings treatment?
No. AA Meetings are not substance use treatment. They are intended to complement a complete addiction treatment program by providing additional support during and afterward. Support groups such as AA shouldn’t be used in place of a rehabilitation program for someone with active substance use disorder.
Does it cost anything to attend AA Meetings?
No, AA meetings don’t cost anything because they are a community-based support group put on by volunteers. AA meetings and membership are free and open to anyone who wishes to join. At most meetings, donations for things like building-space rental or coffee may be requested.
Are AA meetings required to stay sober?
No. While they can be helpful, the use of AA meetings or other support groups is not required to stay sober. It all depends on the recovery model the person has chosen and what works for them.
No, not every peer support group utilizes 12-step methods; this is generally specific to addicts and treating addiction. There are essentially peer support groups for every type of trauma or difficult situation. A group of people comes together to support one another and share similar experiences.
