Here where I live, I know of people who were ordered by the court to attend AA meetings because of their drug use. My question is, does AA really help those who have not gone through a drug/alcohol treatment program first, and does it really help people with drugs when AA is Alcoholics Anonymous? The reason I ask, I have gone to several of these meetings with friends as support. They were not only boring and unhelpful in my eyes, most of the people there were ordered by the court to be there and not willing. I can see AA as being a good support if you have already gone through or in the middle of treatment, but as the main treatment itself??? Any thoughts?
