Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-anon Meetings in Carefree, Arizona
Alcohol abuse affects many people every day. This includes the friends and family members of the alcoholic. There are many options for people in Carefree, Arizona that want to stop alcohol from taking over their life.
What is Alcoholics Anonymous?
Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) is an international group of men and women who have dealt with a drinking problem. Each group within the organization is independent and self-supporting. There are no dues required but each group can take a collection to pay for a location to meet. The only requirement to be part of an AA group is the desire to stop drinking.
Alcoholics Anonymous is not a professional program. Each group is peer-led. Individuals may have a sponsor to help them learn the 12-step process and encourage them through the recovery process. This personal support can make a big difference to keep an alcohol addict on the right path. There are several AA meetings in or near Carefree, Arizona each week.
