A situation may arise where the judicial officer hearing your meeting decides you may benefit from an additional sanction of required Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings. This may also be a requirement after a DAWN Assessment and evaluation has been performed. You will be required to attend the appropriate number of meetings that are determined by your judicial officer or whoever is assessing your drug or alcohol consumption. Below is a link to AGAPE where you can find a calandar of scheduled AA and NA meetings.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a voluntary, worldwide fellowship of men and women from all walks of life who meet together to attain and maintain sobriety. The only requirment for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership.
A.A. is a program of total abstinence. Members simply stay away from one drink, one day at a time. Sobriety is maintained through sharing experience, strength and hope at group meetings and through the suggested Twelve Steps for recovery from alcoholism.
A.A. does not keep membership records or case histories, follow up or try to control its members, made medical or psychiatric prognoses, dispense medicine or psychiatric advice, offer religious services, provide housing, food, clothing, jobs, money, provide domestic or vocational counseling, or provide letters of reference to parole boards, lawyers, court officials, social agencies or employers.
