Professionals that work with AA

Welcome, we’re glad you’re here!

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an organization that provides support and resources to people struggling with alcohol addiction.

It is a worldwide fellowship that aims to help people achieve sobriety and maintain it in the long term. The AA program is based on 12 steps that focus on accepting responsibility for one’s actions, developing a spiritual connection, and creating a support system to help individuals stay sober.

AA meetings are free and open to anyone who wants to attend, and there is no requirement to disclose personal information or commit to any specific time frame for sobriety. Professionals who work with patients struggling with alcohol addiction may find AA meetings to be a valuable resource for their patients.

By attending meetings, patients can connect with others who are going through similar struggles, learn coping strategies for managing triggers, and build a support system to help them maintain sobriety.

It is important to note that while AA can be a helpful tool for many individuals, it is not the only option available for treating alcohol addiction, and professional medical advice should always be sought for any health-related concerns.
