Alcoholics Anonymous - Meetings In Box, Bath, Corsham & Chippenham

AA has a national free helpline where first time callers are offered help by an AA volunteer who will share their experience on recovery and offer to put them in touch with an AA member who will take them to their first meeting.  Some people find details of their local meetings from the AA website or other sources and come along on their own.  If drink is costing more than money then there is help available today.
The national free number is 0800 9177 650 and covers the whole of Great Britain. There is also help by email at and lots more information at is also a 'Chat Now' facility on the website.
