Hi Carole,

The short answer to your question is no, it doesn't matter is your go to an AA meeting for help with a drug/narcotic addiction. Some AA meetings are less open to drug addiction, but if you try a few different AA meetings you're sure to find one where you feel welcome and comfortable at it.

AA with teach you the 12-steps, which will help you to learn how to end you dependence on drugs. The 12-steps combine many forms of addiction treatment and spiritual support to help those who work the steps to end their addiction.
