Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) support groups can be one of the single biggest factors in a person’s recovery. Two of the oldest organizations designed to assist individuals struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, AA and NA have a proven track record of helping people. Both organizations help affected people understand they are not alone in their struggle. This can be a powerful source of inspiration and motivation.

Golden has many meeting locations from which to choose. These include drug rehab centers and independent locations that offer AA and NA meetings. This guide should serve individuals looking for help with their alcohol or narcotics addiction.

AA Meetings in Golden, Colorado

Non-political and non-religious in nature, AA is open to anyone suffering from alcohol addiction and is well-known for its 12-step program. AA provides a safe environment where individuals can talk about their addiction and the impact it has had on themselves and their loved ones. AA also teaches individuals coping mechanisms that can help them in their battle with addiction and make it easier to avoid future relapses.

AA can be especially beneficial to those who are just beginning on the road to sobriety, as it can help educate them about the many resources that are available. AA can help those who have recently completed a rehab program build on that momentum and continue to fight addiction.
