    Default Where do friends of Bill meet in Santiago??

    Hi folks.

    I have a friend who needs some help and he is willing to go meet some of Bill's friends, but I don't know if and where they meet here in Santiago.

    Any assistance will be wonderful.

    Cordially,

    HB

    DR1 gets a bit cryptic. Time to pull out my decoder ring. Lol

    With sincerity, good luck to your friend HB in finding what he needs.*

    I have researched this before. There are a few meetings in the Capital but none in central DR associated with AA world Intergroup. That is not to say there could not be many 12 step AA groups out there but I doubt you will find an open speaker meeting in Santiago. They would most likely be smaller word of mouth meetings, discussion and big book meetings.

    Hillbilly, If by any chance there is a Big Book to be found in Santiago have him start reading the first 164 pages for that is where the steps are drawn out of. Or if he is still on the edge have him start reading the stories in the back. He just might identify and get a bit of hope. If you can not fin one contact me and I will get him one ( English? or Spanish?). My groups representative here in Boston can get these for me. In the meanwhile, this weekend I will call in town and NYC and see if they can direct me to any Dominicans in the area that travel to and know where the meetings are or the contact number of a service member. Remember to tell him the only requirement for AA is the desire to stop drinking. And when he does know there is a better way of life his drinking will be ruined fore ever.

    For those of you who do not know, "friends of Bill" is a discreet euphemism for AA. Hillbilly, being the gentleman he is, knew that anyone who could answer his query would understand it for what it was. And that anyone who didn't want to out themselves as a member could PM him the answer. *

    I am not a member but I have good friends that are, and have had three friends drink themselves to death, so understand the desperation and support people with addiction require. It appears from the number of NA meeting in Santiago that there is a serious Narcotics addiction issue in the DR. NA meetings will help somebody with an alcohol addiction problem as well.

    The list of meetings (referred website) is obviously very outdated.*
    La Roca in Sosua has been closed for a long time, for one example.
    John (John's Recovery House) in Cabarete may know of meetings in Santiago.
    You will find his phone number if you search his website.
