A meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous is a place to share experiences and success stories with other alcoholics. This is a safe place for somebody seeking sobriety to come in and ask for help. These meetings will help them build a support network to live a sober life. You will be invited in by your peers that have all lived and survived from addiction. Their ability to maintain their sobriety is dependent on helping others and giving back to others the gift that they received.
