Blytheville was founded by clergyman Henry T. Blythe in 1879. Like many other cities in America, the largest city in Mississippi County, Arkansas, has several residents living there with an alcohol dependency. Alcoholics Anonymous is assisting the city to provide help to these locals. AA meetings in Blytheville have been set up inside the city offering peer support and group therapy for alcohol addiction. Founded by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA, began as a community-based fellowship to help others fully recover from alcohol addiction. The pair developed the ‘Twelve Steps’ to govern AA meetings and members and later introduced the ‘Twelve Traditions’ to define the organization’s purpose and govern its operations. So powerful has the impact of the ‘Twelve Steps’ on the world of recovery that it has spawned many other support groups. Groups like Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Debtors Anonymous (DA), etc. have similar principles like personal accountability but are slightly different in their representation of them.
