Bradenton, Florida AA Meetings Overview

Bradenton, the birthplace of horse surfing, is also a place where anyone can find a ray of hope for alcoholism recovery. AA Bradenton is a great option with resources and well-established facilities where meetings are held on a daily basis.

Florida in itself has a high percentage of alcohol abuse and dependency. There are at least 6,643 deaths from excessive drinking yearly. In 2011, 17.1% of adults and 19.1% of students in high school admitted to binge drinking. Excess use of alcohol costs Florida up to $13.3 billion annually. This is why institutions such as AA meetings Bradenton Florida are some of the best initiatives to alcohol dependency and play an integral role in alcoholism recovery. These meetings are open to people from all walks of life and completely free to attend.

How Do Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings in Bradenton Florida Look?

AA Bradenton Fl is similar to any other AA support group anywhere in the United States. The doors are open to supporting anyone battling alcoholism and the meetings are overseen by a licensed counselor. The counselor is charged with the responsibility of encouraging members to open up about their experiences with alcohol addiction. Bradenton offers a welcoming, and nurturing environment to peers in recovery. Like every other AA group, Bradenton offers the twelve-step principles which help an individual to discipline themselves as well as reduce their obsession with alcohol.

AA groups encourage members to seek out medical treatment in severe cases or provide aftercare support for those who have undergone treatment and are in recovery. It is not always easy to find an AA group that is perfect for your loved one.

There Are Some Factors to Look At, for Example:

  • Open Meetings: As the name implies, these types of meetings are open to people with a stake in the recovery of attendees, these may be friends, family, media, parole officers, doctors, and others.
  • Closed Meetings: These are stricter and only allow affected persons. The topic is also specifically alcohol abuse and none other.
  • Single Gender Meeting: These meetings are open to a specific gender only, this is to allow gender-sensitive sharing without discomfort.
  • Newcomer Meetings: Beginners usually start off with the newcomers meeting in order to be fully introduced to how AA works, the rules, the benefits, and others.

Getting the Most Out of an AA Meeting in Bradenton, Florida

There are a few ways to get the most out of your AA group. Here are some key things to put into consideration:

  • Consistency: Statistics have shown that people who are consistent with their program are more likely to recover faster than people who skip meetings.
  • Punctuality: It goes without saying that punctuality shows willingness and dedication to recovery
  • Networking: Getting connected to other members outside of AA helps to stay motivated, focused, and to have someone to discuss personal issues with when going through addiction challenges.
  • Asking Questions: It is always important to ask questions to gain clarity.
  • Taking up Responsibilities: This could be taking a position as the secretary, the PRO, or any other responsibility that keeps you dedicated to the group.
