TYPES OF MEETINGS

There are two basic types of AA and NA Meetings in Plett, “open” and “closed”. Anyone is welcome to attend an open meeting, while closed meetings are limited to addicts and to people who think they may have a problem with drugs.

Meeting formats vary, but often include time devoted to the reading aloud of AA and NA Meetings literature regarding the issues involved in living life clean which is written by and for members of NA. Many meetings are conducted by the chairperson who chooses the speakers. Other meetings include an “open sharing” component, where anyone attending has the opportunity to share. There is usually no direct feedback during the “share”; thus only one person ever speaks at any given time during this portion of the meeting. These types of meetings are sometimes described as: speaker/discussion meetings. Some groups choose to host a single speaker (such meetings are usually denoted “speaker meetings”) to share for the majority of the meeting time.

NA and AA Meetings

WHAT TO EXPECT AT AN NA MEETING

To learn more about what happens at an NA meeting, follow this link to NA. There is plenty of useful information about the terms used, formats and the purposes of NA meetings. People have all sorts of reasons for attending NA meetings, but the reason for each meeting is to give NA members a place to share recovery with other addicts. If you are not an addict, look for an open meeting, which welcomes non-addicts. If you’re an addict or think you might have a drug problem, they suggest a meeting every day for at least ninety days to get to know NA members and our program. NA meetings all have the same primary purpose: to carry the message of recovery to any addict that may need it. Meetings vary in length, format and focus areas, and may sometimes be aimed at specific interest groups – but all have the same primary purpose.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT AN AA MEETING

You will find several types of AA meetings. These are marked in the meeting times section above. There will be Speaker, Big Book, Discussion and Step meetings among others. You can refer to the AA website for a complete description of meeting types, as well as explanations of the meeting codes. In general Speaker meetings are where one individual shares his or her recovery story, followed by group discussions. In Discussion meetings everyone can share on the day’s topic or reading.. In Big Book meetings the book of Alcoholics Anonymous is discussed. A Closed meeting is for those who have identified as an alcoholic/addict. An Open meeting is open to those who may want to listen and are not clear on the nature of their alcoholism or addiction. There are meetings for women only, and for men only.

If you are attending your first AA and NA meetings, just find a seat where you are comfortable, sit back and listen. Take in the meeting and how it works so that you are more comfortable next time. Meetings usually start with AA readings and the Serenity Prayer, and end with the Serenity or Lord’s Prayer. You are not required to share at meetings, and at some you are not required to introduce yourself (by first name only). No two AA meetings are alike; the commonality lies in the member’s desire to stay sober. You will find people in the rooms are quite welcoming and encouraging to newcomers. They will encourage you to keep coming back.

Most importantly, keep an open mind. Each meeting has a different dynamic; it can change with the meeting time of day, the location, or the meeting type. Give each meeting a chance, you may need to return a few times before you feel comfortable. Try different meetings and choose your favorite to be your home group. Try to avoid the trap of looking for reasons to justify your desire to not be there and not return. Look for the similarities and not the differences…. Remember, we put an awful lot of effort and time into feeding our addictions; we deserve to give our recovery and our lives much more.
