Frequently Asked Questions

A word about A.A. Meetings…. Anyone can attend an Open Meeting, however Closed Meetings are restricted to those who have or think they may have a problem with alcohol. While in one sense all Meetings are the same, sharing the same formats, structure and purpose, Meetings can also be quite different from one another beyond whether they are Open or Closed – in terms of demographics, style, and emphasis. We encourage Newcomers to try lots of different Meetings. It is important to find Meetings where you feel both comfortable and welcome.
