AA Meetings in Santa Cruz, California

If you have struggled with alcoholism or know someone who has, then you understand that maintaining sobriety requires constant vigilance. After rehab, many recovering alcoholics find that the best way for them to remain sober is to attend AA meetings. Santa Cruz, California, residents who go to local Alcoholics Anonymous meetings after completing traditional or alternative rehab programs greatly increase their chances of staying clean. At Better Addiction Care, we are committed not only to matching you with the right inpatient alcoholism treatment but also to assisting you in finding Santa Cruz AA meetings and other aftercare options to keep you on the right path.

The AA Advantage

Alcoholism is a social disease that is often brought on by an individual's inability to deal with the stresses of life. During an individualized alcohol rehabilitation program, you can attend group counseling sessions where you talk with others about addiction and develop strategies for addressing your problems that do not involve alcohol. After treatment, AA meetings in Santa Cruz allow you to do something similar. Although they are not run by professional counselors, these meetings provide camaraderie and support from others who know what you are going through. You can find strength to remain sober when you attend an AA meeting. Santa Cruz residents who have completed a program at one of the rehabilitation centers we represent greatly improve their odds of remaining alcohol-free when they attend AA.

What if AA Is Not for You?

For many people, AA is a great help, but as is true with rehab programs, not every aftercare option will be right for everyone. That is why we are committed to assisting you in getting the best post-treatment assistance whether or not you want to attend AA meetings. Santa Cruz, CA, recovering alcoholics have many other follow-up care options to choose from, including other religious or community-based rehab groups. Your rehab center can point you in the right direction if AA is not for you, and Better Addiction Care's recovery team will also be there to assist you in finding other options.

Are You Ready for AA?

While recovering alcoholics can find valuable support at AA meetings, Santa Cruz residents, who have not yet completed a customized addiction treatment program are likely to get much less value from AA. AA is best used to help you maintain sobriety, not to achieve it. If you need help leaving alcohol behind, we can help: The treatment facilities in our addiction recovery network are staffed by highly trained medical personnel who will make your rehab as comfortable as possible, and we can help you find the best treatment option for your unique needs. Call today or fill out our contact form for more information about Santa Cruz AA meetings, other aftercare support options, or addiction recovery programs near you.
