Addiction Recovery Meetings in Knoxville

Landmark Recovery of Knoxville believes that fellowship and accountability are imperative in staying on the path to recovery from an addiction to drugs of alcohol. Group support meetings can be a great way to stay in the recovery mindset and find people who are going through a similar experience. Human connections instill trust, vulnerability, and relatability for those who are struggling with substance use disorders. Meeting with a group of individuals who are facing the same struggles as you and learning how to cope with these struggles together will provide accountability and support in your sobriety as well as guidance towards healthy living – physically, mentally, and spiritually.

The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected 12 Step groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and support groups for families and friends of addicted loved ones (Al-Anon and Nar-Anon), in addition to SMART Recovery groups. Many of these meetings have shifted to a virtual platform, but some do hold in-person sessions. With this shift, attendance has dipped as some members do not have access to a computer. Thankfully, many of these meetings have resumed in-person, but there are still virtual options for those who may have a longer commute, a hectic work schedule, or have families to take care of.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings in Knoxville

AA is a fellowship of people who offer accountability and encouragement in recovery from alcohol addiction.

Membership of AA is free, and there are no dues or fees.

“Open” meetings indicate that anyone is welcome to attend the meeting, while “closed” meetings are limited to addicts and those who think they may have a problem with alcohol.

The Park 40 Club hosts the most meetings in the Knoxville area and has a wide variety of meeting structures and types that are offered both in-person and online.
