AA Meetings in the Grand Strand & Surrounding Areas

There are many different kinds of AA meetings. Some include a talk by a sober member, recounting his or her personal experiences about what life was like while drinking, what happened to get them to AA, and what life is like in sobriety. We call this sharing our “Experience, Strength and Hope.” Other kinds of meetings include reading / discussion of the book Alcoholics Anonymous. AA is not a religious organization, although some meetings happen to take place in churches. Some are in community centers, Alano Clubs, hospitals, or even outdoors. With dozens each week in the Grand Strand, there are plenty to choose from. Try several kinds to see what what works for you.

“If you want to keep drinking, that’s your business.  But if you want to stop… AA can help.”

Learn How AA Can Help

What is AA?

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements, no dues or fees, and AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.

AA Preamble

The Preamble was introduced in the June 1947 issue of the AA Grapevine magazine and borrows much of its phrasing from the Foreword to the original edition of the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous.

12 Steps

AA’s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.

12 Traditions

AA’s Twelve Traditions apply to the life of the Fellowship itself. They outline the means by which AA maintains its unity and relates itself to the world about it, the way it lives and grows.

The Decision is Yours

Only you can decide if you are an alcoholic.  If you are worried about your drinking and want to stop, AA can help.
