"What is a good non-12-step support meeting in Philly?"
Asked by HopetrackerA3 Seen by 210
After finally finding the courage to attend my first Al-Anon meeting, I’m sad to say that I really didn’t like it. I know it’s helped so many people, but I just didn’t feel like I connected with anything that was being said and honestly, it was just a little too religious for me. I’ve heard that non-12-step support groups are a great alternative and are more open to modern ideas about addiction. I really need to find a place where I can go to better myself and my understanding of my son’s disease. I can’t give up yet. Are there any like this in the Philly area? What’s the best way to find one near me? Click here to report this post as inappropriate. flag

I started going to Families Anonymous and I really like those meetings. I would suggest giving them a try - you can go on Familiesanonymous.com and put in your zip code and local meetings come up. Good luck!

My ex husband who lives in Philly was close enough to the Medford Ambrosia to go visit my daughter on Tuesdays and they had public meetings with a speaker, he said they were fantastic!

It is important to try several meetings, as each one will have a different vibe. Families Anonymous is a family meeting that meets in the Philly and NJ area: https://www.familiesanonymous.org. Families Anonymous is less structured than other 12-step groups and allows crosstalk.
