Need an AA or AL-ANON  Meeting
anywhere in New York State?

      We all know how the devastation of active addiction affects not only the addict or alcoholic but extends to all who are close and often into the workplace and community. With this, 12-Step groups often offer a pathway of hope and help for both the alcoholic or the families and friends of anyone with an alcohol problem.  It often offers the best assistance for both recovery and long-term recovery.
