Here are links to Twelve Step fellowship websites that should all offer meetings lists for addicts. I hope that one day all addicts who travel will find a Secular Twelve Step group at their destination. By 2010 there were over 115,000 Alcoholics Anonymous groups in 150 countries with an estimated membership of over 2.1 million. The internet address is www.aa.org. (For Secular AA online meetings browse for aa-intergroup.org and click on ‘Find Next Available Meeting’; then click on required ‘Day’ and ‘Secular’ in the search panel)
www.na.org seems to be the next most widespread with 58,000 meetings in 131 countries.
Other chemical dependency groups include
Cocaine Anonymous at www.ca.org
Crystal Meth Anonymous at www.crystalmeth.org
Marijuana Anonymous at www.marijuana-anonymous.org
