Addiction recovery meetings in Huntington Beach can be beneficial for those at all stages of recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism.

Addiction Support Groups in Huntington Beach

Alcoholics Anonymous Huntington Beach

AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) was the first 12-step peer support group. The organization was founded in Ohio in 1935. AA now has a global presence and an estimated 2 million members.

Confidentiality and anonymity underpin Alcoholics Anonymous. Whatever stage of your recovery you are at, attending AA meetings in Huntington Beach will provide you with a safe space where you can discuss personal, and emotional issues without fear of judgment.

AA meetings are free of charge. The only requirement is a desire to be sober. Central to 12-step methodology is the concept of admitting your complete powerlessness over the use of drink or drugs. This is the first of the 12 steps, with the third step involving handing the care of your life to a higher power as you see them. If you continue to engage with AA meetings in Huntington Beach, you will work your way through the 12 steps, leaning on the support of peers with lived experience of alcoholism.

Although not all alcohol rehabs draw from 12-step methodology, most will connect you with local meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous in Huntington Beach.

Narcotics Anonymous Huntington Beach

NA (Narcotics Anonymous) is a drug addiction recovery support group with meetings in Huntington Beach, California and worldwide.

If you are addicted to prescription medications or illicit drugs, recovery is a lifelong process, and it may not always be linear. NA meetings can serve as a valuable component in a drug addiction treatment program in Orange County.

To participate in Narcotics Anonymous meetings, you need to agree to abstain completely from all drugs. In the words of the non-profit fellowship, “There are no strings attached to NA.”
