Find AA meetings in Carthage, North Carolina
The small town of Carthage, North Carolina, began as home to horse-drawn buggy manufacturing. This early prosperity remains evident in the historic homes around the city. Unfortunately, even small towns like Carthage have some residents who experience the undesirable effects of alcohol use disorder (AUD). When looking for AA meetings in Carthage, use our online directory to locate nearby meetings. AUD is a disease typified by uncontrolled drinking and relationship distress caused by alcohol use. Alcoholics Anonymous offers peer support groups open to anyone who desires to quit drinking, and there are no membership fees. AA meetings rely on the teachings of the Big Book of AA and utilize the 12 Steps of AA as the foundation of recovery. The 12-step program is a systematic self-improvement and growth program. The structure of different meetings varies, but a common component is a time for member sharing. Members take turns talking about their recovery stories, including challenges and hopes as they work the program. Sharing is encouraged because it enables recovery, but it’s not required. Members are invited to participate but are not pressured to share. Meeting attendance is a vital part of recovery; even if you relapse, stay present at meetings. Some with AUD find the need for further support, in addition to AA North Carolina meetings. Formal rehab programs, such as detox, outpatient, and inpatient treatments, may help your journey begin effectively.
