AA Meetings in NJ
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is a fellowship of men and women who want to share their experiences and struggles to recover from dependence on alcohol in order to support and help each other. It takes nothing but a desire to quit drinking to join this fellowship. It is self-supported through the contributions made by the members. Alcoholics Anonymous follows the 12-Steps to help people enter recovery from an addiction to alcohol. AA meetings are so ubiquitous that they are even held in cruise ships! Over the decades AA has helped millions of people achieve and maintain sobriety.

A Tradition of Service:
In AA terms service means spreading the message about AA. It is about sharing the means of staying sober. It is about being ready to help a fellow member anytime, anywhere. It is about being active in your one’s local AA group. It is about getting involved in functions that serve the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. A service may include small tasks like chairing the meetings, making the coffee, group services, greet the people, answering the phones, or speaking at meetings and events.
At CNT, we not only support AA, we allow AA to run groups at our facility daily while patients are attending our various programs.
In case of emergency call 911 or head to the nearest ER.
