The You Are Not Alone Group welcomes you to Playa del Carmen’s English-speaking fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous!
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Our meetings are held seven days a week at 5:30 pm and on Monday through Friday at 12:00 (noon). All meetings are open and last one hour.
Spanish-language meetings on Tuesdays at 8pm and Thursdays at 7 pm.
