AA Meetings and NA Meetings in Dade City

Entering and completing a substance abuse treatment program in Dade City is just the beginning of the marathon that is addiction recovery. The temptation of old demons from the days of your dependency on drugs and/or alcohol can pull on you much more strongly after leaving the safe and structured environment of a rehabilitation program. Combining that with environmental triggers from home can seem like a terrifying circumstance to face alone. Luckily, in Dade City, you are not alone in your fight for sobriety. There are people just like you meeting every week to give each other guidance and support.

Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA, and Narcotics Anonymous, or NA, have been providing recovering addicts with a safe forum to ask for and receive help from peers for decades. AA meetings and NA meetings give you an opportunity to learn from others’ stories of battling addiction and allows you the cathartic experience of sharing your own story. Some AA meetings and NA meetings have open forum sessions, in which you can bring friends and family to listen and learn more about what you have lived through as an addict.

AA Meetings in Dade City, Florida

AA meetings in Dade City are built on the foundations of Alcoholics Anonymous, a group of men and women who have come to the self-realization that they are powerless alone against the temptations of alcohol and are working together to live enriching and substantial lives without drinking. Alcoholics Anonymous meetings teach how to work the “Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous” to make amends for past alcohol-induced transgressions and work toward a sober and happy existence. These “steps” will become commonplace to you as you continue attending Dade City AA meetings, along with motivational slogans like “Easy Does It” and “First Things First”.

What is so powerful about Alcoholics Anonymous meetings is the sense of communal understanding you will gain. You are constantly welcomed with open arms by others who completely understand where you are in your recovery and what you have gone through to get there. Not only does this help you feel less isolated and stigmatized by your alcohol addiction, you also gain a sense of accountability to your sobriety.

AA meetings often differ in tone and style, dependent upon the group leader and the attendees at the meeting. It is perfectly fine to attend a number of different meetings until you find one where you feel comfortable.
