Walking Map for Downtown Ypsilanti
We are always happy that students and court ordered clients are interested in learning about Alcoholic Anonymous (A.A.). If you DO NOT have a desire to stop drinking, OPEN meetings of A.A. are available to you and the public. Many of these meetings consist of volunteer(s) sharing their story of their lives on their path to recovery. Those who wish to attend solely to observe, learn about the program, or document attendance at a meeting, should attend OPEN (public) meetings. Attending an OPEN meeting is a great way to learn about recovery. There are several OPEN A.A. Meetings in this area but NO OPEN Al-Anon meetings at this time. For more information about Local Al-Anon. You can also find information about A.A. at World Services.
If a proof of attendance form is necessary , for any reason, please note there is no set of procedures that apply to all meetings.
Of course, Students and those with legal problems who feel they may belong in A.A. or Al-Anon because they want to recover from a personal problem involving alcoholism are always welcome to attend any meeting as a member. The only requirement to be a member and attend CLOSED A.A. meetings is a desire to stop drinking.
It is important however that students, court ordered clients and other observers understand that CLOSED A.A. and Al-Anon meetings are intended for people directly affected by alcoholism. Everything shared at a meeting or member-to-member must be kept entirely confidential..Note: OPEN meetings are designated: 'O' under Meeting Type and CLOSED meetings are designated 'C' under Meeting Type in the search box below. Also see that other types of meetings are available, please review the Key to Meeting Type box (below right).
