A clarification on Plainfield AA meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous has changed tens of thousands of lives.

This is a clarification of the recent post concerning Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in Plainfield (see the post here).

A friend advised that whether or not the former Muhlenberg AA group meeting is disbanding, there are many other AA meetings available in Plainfield.

Alcoholics Anonymous of Northern NJ has a website (see here) with lots of useful information and links -- including a search for meetings by town or area.

A search for Plainfield turned up sixteen meetings, covering every day of the week (see here). Some are open, some closed. Some have speakers. Some are 12-step meetings. There are meetings for Spanish-speakers five times a week.

I don't want to leave the impression that the closing down of one meeting means there is no AA presence in Plainfield.

Far from it.

What you seem to be missing is that for some AA is a life saving group. Members who go to their home group feel comfortable going and some after 55 years helping their members may not want to move their location. In you search did you find an AA meeting in that area? Some can’t get across town, don’t or can drive or feel uncomfortable going into an area they don’t know or the feel unsafe even if it’s just a perception of the area. Please don’t minimize this loss to Plainfield and the Muhlenberg area.
