Bordering Illinois’ Edison Park, Norwood Park, and O’Hare, three of the northwestern neighborhoods on Chicago’s Far North Side, the suburban city of Park Ridge is in Cook County, fifteen miles from downtown Chicago. You can find AA meetings in Park Ridge close to home to provide free peer support for alcohol addiction recovery. All AA meetings Illinois offer a non-judgmental atmosphere of welcome and mutual support, although the style of the meetings may vary. There are meetings based on Alcoholics Anonymous 12-steps, but there are also other types of meetings that are not based in AA’s 1930s “Big Book,” such as LGBTQI+ meetings and meditation meetings. Online meetings are offered as well for those who can’t attend in person. The organization understands the importance of change, and of providing for the different needs of different people with alcohol use disorder. People in recovery may be able to relate to each other strongly as a community, but the specific path that will help them most as they heal from the pain of addiction will differ from person to person.
