Problems with drinking?

If you think you have a problem with drinking, we’re here to help.

If you seem to be having trouble with your drinking, or if your drinking has reached the point of where it worries you, you may be interested to know something about Alcoholics Anonymous and the A.A. program of recovery from alcoholism. After reading this brief outline you may decide that A.A. has nothing to offer you.

Should this be the case, we suggest only that you keep an open mind on the subject. Consider your drinking carefully in the light of what you learn from this website.

Determine for yourself whether or not alcohol has truly become a problem for you. And remember that you will always be most welcome to join the thousands of men and women in A.A. who have put their drinking problems behind them and now lead “normal” lives of constructive, day by day sobriety.

If you have already decided you want help, please attend one of the many AA meetings in Zurich. Meeting schedules and directions are posted under “AA Meetings” in the menu above.

If you need immediate help, call the Zurich AA Helpline +41 32 511 6967. A volunteer member of AA is available to speak with you 24/7. If no answer, leave voice mail with your first name and phone number. Someone will call you back.
Remember there are no dues or fees for A.A.
