At this time (8/3/12) we are able to list some 1,480 A. A. meetings in Connecticut, 42 of them Spanish-speaking, in the cities and towns listed below.
To limit the need to jump from page to page, as well as to give a broader overview of what is available, beyond our own groups, neighborhoods and towns, we have brought most of the meetings together into 8 county-wide pages, to which the index below will generally first bring our visitors. Cities too large to usefully fit in that format are instead listed separately. This is generally the case with Fairfield, Hartford and New Haven Counties, which pages contain only the meetings of the 'smaller' towns (fewer than two each day).
The other county pages do also have links to separate pages for those cities and towns with (roughly) two or more meetings each day, as well as distinct pages for their remaining 'smaller' towns, to make them easier to find in the pages as well.
As a special point for these Connecticut pages, A. A. is based on and run by its autonomous groups, contrary to the case in most organizations. It would certainly help indicate this, to have the individual names of the groups in the lists, lest people come to think of the meetings as a sort of franchise operation of some central 'authority'. We have accordingly guessed at those names when possible, but please advise ... and correct where we have guessed wrong.
As with all we do in A. A., we rely on each other for meeting information. Where questions seem especially important to clear up, we have added a little pop-up note (Help!) to alert our visitors and ask for your assistance.
Please let us know – firstname.lastname@example.org – of any corrections, additions, subtractions and suggestions you may have – so that, together, we can let those who need us know where to find us.
This online listing of A. A. meetings is put together from many sources, including local and central office meeting directories, the listings of local clubs and community resources, and direct information from the groups and members involved.
It is offered as a free service to anybody who can use it.It is unaffiliated with any official bodies – or with any organization at all, for that matter.
— Unless specified as “Closed”, all meetings are open to anyone with an interest in recovery from alcoholism.
— “Closed” meetings are only for those who themselves have “a desire to stop drinking.”
— All meetings are held weekly, unless clearly marked as 'Only' a specified week(s).
— If meetings are known to be other than one hour in length, the closing time is given.
— The meeting format, if not clear from the group name, is shown below the address. If none is shown, assume Open Discussion.
— You may generally assume that there is no smoking in the meetings.
— The © symbol next to an address indicates that it is wheelchair-accessible.
— To make finding the meetings easier, and out of respect for our hosts, we try to fully identify the locations in which we meet.
— Where we do have to shorten names, we apologize. E.g., while all Methodists are in fact “United”,
the extra word often doesn't fit well in the lines.
— We have included Maps for each meeting, with pop-up Thomas Guide coordinates, where available.
— If only the format of a meeting is known, the space for a group name is left blank.
— If there really is no A. A. group, however, it is not really an A. A. meeting at all. Please advise!
— Genuine A. A. meetings, and the groups that hold them, are not and never should be affiliated in any way with any locations
in which they are held, whether they be hospitals, schools, clubs, treatment or community centers, etc.

When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help,
I want the hand of A.A. always to be there.
And for that . . . I am responsible.
