Although Granite Shoals has a very small population, the city in Burnet County Texas has its fair share of people who are suffering from alcohol use disorder. Alcoholics Anonymous programs are used to help the city’s residents with their drinking problems. Alcoholics Anonymous or AA has helped millions of people across the world overcome alcohol addiction and achieve sobriety. AA was founded decades ago by people who have recovered from AUD and managed to remain sober for many years. Since then AA programs have been run by senior members. At most AA meetings one of these leaders shares their alcohol addiction story and describes the sobriety they have found in the informal fellowship. These senior members are a major component of AA’s success as they are a major positive influence and motivational factor for attendees. They have an exceptional ability to reach and help people with drinking problems. They have been through the treacherous journey of alcohol addiction before so they know exactly how the participants feel. In fact, every person involved in AA and most who attend AA meetings have been through it before thus cultivating a unique feeling of fellowship and community among its members. AA meetings in Granite Shoals as well as AA Texas meetings from other cities in the state are listed on AlcoholicsAnonymous.com.
