AA/NA Meeting Information

Many of the AA/NA meetings have made a transition to a virtual online meeting. This could be through a chat group or an online video chat such as skype. AA/NA meetings will continue to be a good support system during this time. Any information you log will be great and will show the effort you have made to maintain your sobriety. 

The court recognizes that meetings may not be available and will not penalize non-attendance during the Covid-19 quarantine period. 

Attached is a link for some online AA/NA meetings for your convenience.
