Alcoholics Anonymous Stockbridge GA

The label “Alcoholics Anonymous” evokes a certain stigma that most people new to sobriety are not comfortable with. The idea of going to a meeting where someone in Stockbridge might see you is uncomfortable in early sobriety. Even admitting that you’re an alcoholic can take time to get used to.
