We are a fellowship group of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other. Our purpose is to tackle our common problem of alcoholism and help each other to recover from it.
Our group meets in Southfield Centre on Friday evenings at 7.30pm.
How would you know whether Alcoholics Anonymous is for you?
Consider these questions : Do you often drink more than you intend or want to?
Do you get into trouble when you drink?
Has your drinking reached a point where it worries you?
Does your drinking cause problems at home or at work?
Have you tried and failed to control your drinking?
If you have answered 'yes' to some of these questions, our Friday evening meetings at Southfield could help you. You will be with people who understand your problem, people who can talk about what drink did to their lives, what actions they took and how they live their lives today. Best of all, you will see people who have recovered from their alcoholism - IT IS POSSIBLE - and, from them, you will be able to draw hope that you can do the same.
We keep no attendance records or lists of names. Alcoholics Anonymous means that you have a complete assurance that nobody will disclose your identity to anyone outside.
There are no fees or dues. All we have is a collection at each meeting to cover the room hire and the tea and biscuits; you can give as much or as little as you like. The only requirement on your part is a desire to stop drinking.
Experience has shown that the best ways to recover from alcoholism are
to stay away from the first drink;
to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings regularly;
to seek out those who have recovered;
to try to put the Alcoholics Anonymous programme into practice.
So why not see whether Alcoholics Anonymous at Southfield can help you? You will be made most welcome. There is no obligation - so why not come along and see Alcoholics Anonymous at work?
However, if you think you have a drinking problem and really feel that you cannot attend our meetings, there are other ways to seek help :
