A new meeting has started in Lafayette, described as ’21st Century AA’ by its members. The group meets on Friday nights at 7 pm, off Kaliste Saloom across from Marcello’s. More info on their flyer, available here.
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 AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution;
does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
