At present we are able to list 435 A. A. meetings (51 in Spanish) held in Contra Costa County, in the 26 towns listed below.
Rather than have a separate page for each town, we have combined nearby meetings into 'master' pages, the idea being to bring together as much information as possible in a single place, to make it less necessary to jump from page to page, and to give a better overview of what is available, beyond our own groups, neighborhoods and towns.
There is also a combined page for all Spanish-language meetings in the county, in addition to their listings in the towns where they take place.
For those who can use them, we do provide separate pages for locations with (roughly) two or more meetings each day. The basic idea of all this, after all, is to make the meetings easier to find, especially for the newcomer or stranger.
As with all we do in A. A., we rely on each other for meeting information. Where something seems especially important to clear up, we have added a little pop-up note (Help!) to alert our visitors and ask for your help.
Please let us know – email@example.com – 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 in Contra Costa County (and the Bay Area) is put together from many sources, including local and central office meeting directories, the listings of local clubs, and direct information from the groups and members involved.
It is offered as a free service to those who can use it. It is unaffiliated with any official bodies – or with any outside organization, 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”.
— 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 have tried to fully identify the locations in which we meet.
— Where we did have to shorten names, we apologize. E.g., while all Methodists are in fact United, the extra word doesn't fit well in the lines.
— We have added links to Maps for each meeting; the links contain (as a pop-up) the Thomas Guide coordinates for the location, if available.
— The meeting format, if not clear from the group name, is shown separately. If not specified, assume open discussion/participation.
— If only the format 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.
