The Best AA Meetings in Washington State

Home/The Best AA Meetings in Washington State

You are an AA member if you say so. You can declare yourself in; nobody can keep you out. No matter who you are, no matter how low you’ve gone, no matter how grave your emotional complications – even your crimes – we still can’t deny you AA. We don’t want to keep you out.”

~Alcoholics Anonymous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions

Very early in recovery, you learn not to let yourself get too lonely or too bored, because both can lead to relapse. You are taught that when you feel overwhelmed by either of these emotions – go to a meeting, because the positive interaction with others will help keep you sober.

One of the best things about Alcoholics Anonymous is the fact that there is ALWAYS a meeting going on SOMEWHERE. That’s especially true in Washington State – if you have a problem with alcohol, you can rest assured that you can find a group of people just like you, ready to offer you fellowship, strength, support, and inspiration.

Best of all, since Alcoholics Anonymous is founded on principles, not personalities, you can rest assured that you will always be able to find comfort and healing within AA meeting halls.

Let’s take a look at some of the best AA meetings in a few of Washington State’s major cities:

There is even a different late-night group that meets at midnight at the same location three nights a week.
