Like so many other communities in California, Thermal has Alcoholics Anonymous meeting locations set up for residents who are struggling with alcohol addiction. This disease is caused by consistent over-consumption of alcohol despite suffering from its negative ramifications. These ramifications range from financial and social issues to debilitating diseases, and possibly death. When people drink heavily and frequently, they become physically and mentally dependent on alcohol. Any attempt to suddenly stop usually results in them suffering from withdrawal symptoms and cravings. These symptoms range from mild to severe including anxiety and restlessness, headaches, nausea or vomiting, and elevated heart and blood pressure rates. Though medications and detox are used to curb these withdrawal symptoms, Alcoholics Anonymous or AA has proven to be one of the most effective treatment techniques used to ultimately achieve sobriety for people suffering from alcohol addiction. The group therapy program provides a platform for them to meet and share their addiction stories with each other. AA meetings are a fellowship that reassures its members that they are not alone in their struggles. Residents of the unincorporated community within the Coachella Valley in Riverside County, California who need help with their drinking problems can find AA meetings in Thermal on AlcoholicsAnonymous.com. The directory also lists AA California meetings from other communities in the state.
