Virtual, Online, and Phone AA & NA Meetings

Affect provides professional addiction treatment to support people in twelve-step recovery programs

Twelve-step meetings online give you a recovery community, Affect puts a licensed addiction treatment program in your pocket. It’s an unbeatable combination for beating addictions to alcohol and drugs, and you don’t have to go to a clinic or a meeting. It all comes right to you.

Alcoholics Anonymous is the original twelve-step recovery program. Since it was started in the 1930s, AA’s peer-support model has helped countless people stop drinking. It’s free to attend and meetings can be found at all times, all over the country. If you’re looking for an AA meeting near you, you can find one here. But many people prefer to attend meetings online because it fits their life better. We’ve compiled a list of virtual meetings that are all just a click away.

But if you’re looking for more robust support in recovery, you can find that with us. Affect’s app-based treatment program is a perfect companion to twelve-step programs. You get an outpatient treatment program right in your pocket.

Get Licensed Addiction Treatment for Alcohol and Drugs Through a Smartphone App

Many people who got to free twelve-step programs are also in outpatient treatment programs. People in AA and NA can struggle with relapses and need more support from trained counselors and medical professionals who are experienced experts in substance use disorder treatment.

It also helps to have medical support with medications to manage cravings and ease discomfort from anxiety, depression, or other effects in early sobriety. The program is covered by Medicaid and many health insurance plans are accepted. And, it works twice as well as traditional treatment programs at alcohol and drug rehab clinics.

Professional treatment also helps people who are deeper into their step work and getting into the reasons behind their drinking. A licensed and experienced counselor who specializes in addiction not only helps people stop drinking, they also know how to sustain recovery as people uncover their issues and need to resolve them.

The great thing about Affect is you get group and individual therapy and all the services of a rehab clinic through your phone. If you like virtual twelve-step meetings, Affect’s telehealth addiction program is going to be a great fit for you.

Virtual Twelve-Step Meetings

A virtual Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meeting can be a lifesaver when you’re struggling or feeling low, whether you’re working a treatment program to get sober or managing your sobriety. There are many online AA and NA meetings from both local and national groups at all times of the day. There are also call-in phone meetings for those who can’t get onto a webcast. And, if you’re not comfortable with AA or NA, there are other programs like SMART Recovery online.

These virtual meetings are great options when you can’t get to an in-person AA or NA meeting near you, or there isn’t one available. You may be in between your regular individual or group therapy in your addiction treatment program, or away from home and can’t get to your usual support group. You don’t have to be in Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous to attend one of their meetings, they’re open to anyone.

Get the extra support you need any time you need it

An online AA or NA meeting can also be a great way to manage your recovery journey when triggers and stresses come up. If you’re in a group of people or with family for some occasion or holiday, you can just excuse yourself for a bit and find a quiet place to listen on your headphones discreetly to get a quick pick-me-up. Or you may be feeling alone and some community will help you feel connected and grounded.

It’s always good to listen to other people who are working their journeys, dealing with challenges, and finding gratitude to keep going. Like any AA or NA meeting, you don’t have to share in a virtual one. But, sometimes it helps just to say the words, “I’m an addict,” in a safe space of people who know what you’re going through.

The AA and NA community have a saying, “There’s no such thing as a bad meeting.” It’s really difficult to pick up and use after attending one and being reminded of why you’re on this recovery journey – and hearing that it really does work.

“Affect has shown me a caring side that I never had for myself. It has made me rise as an individual and I have uplifted my courage, bravery, and willpower to obtain my sobriety.

You understood me and made sure I was safe in the midst of all my experiences.

I love my coach. He’s a licensed professional, not just another former addict.

This program is actually useful. My DUI program takes an hour just to do roll call.

This program changed my life. I now have goals. Before I had nothing.
