Ellsworth, Maine AA meetings
Considered by many as one of the best places to live in Maine, Ellsworth is a beautiful city in the state’s Hancock County region. With the city experiencing a considerable rise in the number of people with alcohol use disorder, AA meetings in Ellsworth have sprouted up to provide support to the community and supplement other AA meetings in Maine. Founded in 1935, AA has become a pillar of support to those with alcohol use disorder where the only membership requirement is the desire to stop abusing alcohol. AA meetings could feel intimidating to the uninitiated, but the welcoming community can quickly help new members past that initial fear. In fact, beginner meetings are available to help ease in new attendees. Participation is not mandatory, and people are encouraged to go at their own speeds. AA and its meetings are guided by the principles laid out in the Big Book (officially titled Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism), originally penned by founding member WIlliam G. Wilson and updated several times since. Among other things, details and instructions of the 12-step program are included in the Big Book. There are AA meetings specifically dedicated to the study and application of Big Book principles. Additionally, there are several other types of AA meetings in Ellsworth including but not limited to demographic-specific meetings, discussion meetings, speaker meetings, and more.
