Alcohol and Substance Abuse

word cloud graphicAlcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or Institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.

Narcotics Anonymous Meetings Turlock

Narcotics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who are learning to live without drugs. We meet regularly to help each other stay clean. We are not interested in what you have done in the past, only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help.

Narcotics Anonymous meetings provide an atmosphere of recovery where individuals can share their common problem and solutions. In our recovery we have found that living clean is very difficult without support.
