In Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA), members attend regular meetings to support each other’s sobriety. These meetings are not led by medical professionals, but rather by other ex-addicts. Each newcomer will be assigned a sponsor – a more experienced member who will act as your personal go-to in moments of need.
One major benefit of these programmes is that they can be found in towns and cities all over the world. If you move house, have to travel for work, or find yourself feeling tempted while away from home, you’re sure to find a meeting near you.
