Sometimes we all need help. Other times we need help right away! The following resources can point you in the right direction. Find links to meetings, phone support, specialized groups, and more. If you are ready to talk to C.U.R.A. about residential treatment for addiction, please contact us.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who come together to solve their drinking problem. It doesn’t cost anything to attend A.A. meetings. There are no age or education requirements to participate. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about their drinking problem.
A.A.’s primary purpose is to help alcoholics to achieve sobriety. Find a Meeting
Narcotics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who are learning to live without drugs. We meet regularly to help each other stay clean. We are not interested in what you have done in the past, only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help.
Narcotics Anonymous meetings provide an atmosphere of recovery where individuals can share their common problem and solutions. In our recovery we have found that living clean is very difficult without support.
The only requirement for membership is the desire to stop using. You don’t have to be clean when you get here. You don’t have to wait for an overdose or a jail sentence to get help from NA. Addiction is not a hopeless condition from which there is no recovery. We do recover. Visit the Northern California Region of Narcotics Anonymous and Find a Meeting.
Adult Children of Alcoholics
We meet to share our experience of growing up in an environment where abuse, neglect and trauma infected us. This affects us today and influences how we deal with all aspects of our lives.
ACA provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment that allows us to grieve our childhoods and conduct an honest inventory of ourselves and our family—so we may (i) identify and heal core trauma, (ii) experience freedom from shame and abandonment, and (iii) become our own loving parents.
