Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)
AA is specifically designed for those recovering from alcoholism. While in this kind of alcohol abuse support group, you can learn from the experiences of others, and receive encouragement from them. Additionally, you can share your own experiences with alcohol abuse, and be a source of support for your peers.
Many AA groups are open, which means anyone is welcome to attend and share their insights. Closed meetings, on the other hand, are meant only for those who are in recovery. Regardless of the type of meeting you attend, you can still benefit from the nonjudgmental support that these groups offer.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA)
NA was established to help individuals who are recovering from drug addictions. Similar to alcohol abuse support groups, NA groups are based on the 12 Steps. While in these groups, you may encounter people recovering from heroin, meth, or cocaine addictions, to name a few. Additionally, like with AA groups, you can share your story, hear other people’s stories, and benefit from being around others who may have experienced similar challenges with drug addiction. Finally, there are both open and closed NA meetings available, and you can choose which type of meeting is right for you.
