What is Alcoholics Anonymous?
Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) is an international support group. AA has local meetings in many places around the world. Men and women who have had drinking problems meet to talk about their experiences. They encourage one another to follow the 12-step process to become and remain sober.
Membership in an alcoholics anonymous group only has one requirement. That is the desire to quit drinking. There is not professional therapy at the meetings, they are peer-led. Each meeting group is independent of other groups, but they all follow the same 12-step process. There are AA meetings available Sunday through Saturday in or near Bullhead City, Arizona.
What is Al-Anon?
Al-Anon is a support group for people affected by another person’s alcohol abuse. This support group is not for the person with a drinking problem. This is a very helpful group for people who are trying to cope with living with someone who will not stop drinking. It is also good for the family and friends of the alcoholic who is trying to quit.
At an Al-Anon meeting, participants share their own experiences. This can help another member find a more effective way to interact with their loved one who drinks. There is some research that suggests alcoholics who enter a rehab program can have more success if their family is also in a recovery group.
