On each of our pages are contact details that can be used to call and find help and advice if you have a problem with alcohol – we are still here and can help if you wish to contact us.
If you have difficulties due to alcohol, or you are affected because someone you know or love is having difficulties, you will find here information which may help you.
Simply click on the “Where to find” button in the menu list to open up a map of the locations of our meetings, some of which are bilingual and can also cater for French speakers. Click on highlighted locations to find details of English speaking AA meetings, groups and contacts in Aquitaine, Midi-Pyrenées, Poitou-Charentes, Limousin and Languedoc-Roussillon.
If you have a problem due to alcohol and are seeking help then any of the contacts identified within this site will be willing to listen and offer assistance. Whether you are resident or a visitor to our regions of France help is only a phone call away.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership, we are self supporting through our own contributions.
AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses not opposes any causes.
Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Do you have a partner, relative or friend with a drinking problem?
For every person who misuses alcohol it is estimated that at least 5 other people are affected. These include partners, parents, children and friends.
It can be very difficult for family members to live with and care about a person who misuses alcohol, without sacrificing their own health and happiness.
However, this does not mean that the situation is hopeless. Family members and friends of alcoholics can get help for themselves. Please press the button “Al-Anon” for further information.
