Alcohol addiction is a serious problem in Canada and Newfoundland is no exception. The only way a person is going to get over their dependency on alcohol is by getting involved in programs like Alcoholics Anonymous. Newfoundland is part of Alcoholics Anonymous Area 82. The region also includes Nova Scotia. The goal of Area 82 is to make sure that every alcoholic in the area has access to the resources that they need to overcome their addiction and become a sober and productive member of society. Even though the main branch of Newfoundland’s AA, Area 82, covers an enormous amount of territory, the section is also divided into smaller chapters that usually contain a few cities. These chapters are a close-knit group of people. Most of the chapters have nightly meetings which are open for anyone to attend. Newfoundland is divided into five individual chapters. Newfoundland’s Alcoholics Anonymous has a few very simple goals. They want everyone who becomes involved in their program to have someplace to turn to which will provide support, hope, encouragement, and love. The program happily welcomes anyone who is serious about getting over their alcohol addiction. The program relies heavily on religion to help the alcoholic get over their addiction.

There are a few different reasons why an alcoholic will choose to join Alcoholics Anonymous. One of the most compelling reasons is a success. The reason that AA is an international organization and has been around since 1945 is because the organization’s twelve-step program works. Another reason is that it is free. The final reason so many people turn to the organization for help with their addiction is that the organization is convenient In addition to being a source of information for the alcoholics in both Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, the Area 82 Alcoholics Anonymous also organizes events. Some of the events that the organization hosts include the annual Lighthouse Roundup, the mid-winter round-up, and a few other events. The different events provide the local members with an opportunity to mingle with others who have gone through similar problems, gather information, and listen to motivational speakers. Many members feel that these events provide a welcome change from the meetings that they attend during the rest of the year. There are AA meetings scattered all over Newfoundland. To find the ones closest to you all you have to do is visit the official website. Once you are there, you will find all sorts of information about the different meeting places and times. Make sure that you choose the correct chapter. If you do have difficulty, the website provides the email address of several different people, all of who will be happy to answer your questions. Just because you might be traveling and far away from home, it does not mean that you can’t get support. There are AA chapters all over the world. All you have to do is find one of these meetings and show up. They will be happy to see you and will provide you with all the support that you need.
