Looking for something that not only provides helpful local information on meetings, but also recovery articles? Download Meeting Finder, a helpful app on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. As a recovering heroin addict, I have attended meetings for ten years. I find this application helpful as it allows me to find new meeting places to meet new friends and have more experiences.

‘Whether or not someone chooses to attend meetings as long as me, I like the ability to connect with others who may need help and reassurance they can make it as long as I have without relapsing. Meeting Finder also has helpful recovery articles that make for nice references for those I talk to on its message boards. Whether to suggest treatment options to or just encouraging someone on a bad day, the message boards are helpful, encouraging and perhaps the most important part of the entire app.

The interface is easy to use and very clear. This information is indispensable and makes not attending meetings, no longer an excuse. I like being able to update the information for meetings directly from the database. This helps others when meeting locations or times change.

Meeting Finder is a must-have app for anyone who wants a fast, easy way to find local NA, AA, CA or any other anonymous meetings! What are you waiting for? Download it now!

Here is the list of the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous: A non profit organization that supports and helps alcoholics recover from alcoholism using it’s 12 step program.

1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
