Washington, Kansas AA meetings
Washington is a city in, and the county seat of, Washington County, Kansas. The city which was established in spring 1860, has a history of alcohol addiction. Millions of people across the world are dealing with alcohol use disorder. It is estimated that over ten million people in America alone have the debilitating disorder. Recovering from alcohol use disorder (AUD) is very difficult. An individual’s outcome depends on their ability to stop drinking, as well as the health complications that have developed because of prolonged alcohol misuse. Excessive and extensive alcohol consumption can lead to health complications such as liver and kidney damage, pancreatitis, depression, high blood pressure, dementia, to more serious consequences such as cancer, brain damage, brain disease, and death. Many people who seek treatment end up overcoming the addiction. However, a strong support system is critical to achieving a complete recovery. This is why Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is one of the most effective forms of treatment for alcohol addiction. The international organization has helped millions of people around the world achieve long-term sobriety by providing solid peer support through AA meetings. Residents of Washington can get help locally by attending AA meetings in Washington. Location details for these, as well as other AA meetings in Kansas, are listed on alcoholicsanonymous.com.
