AA is a support group for people with alcohol problems. Members attend free meetings with other recovering alcoholics; these meetings are confidential, private and anonymous, according to HelpGuide. The main website at AA.org does not have a meeting finder, but does list the websites for each state's AA organization, notes Alcoholics Anonymous. To find local meetings, click on your state to be taken to its website, then click on the meeting finder link.

NA is a support organization similar to AA, but is open to people with all types of substance abuse problems, notes HelpGuide. To find local NA meetings, go to NA.org and click on Find a Meeting. Choose the desired state or enter an area code to display a list of available meetings. NA and AA typically hold meetings several times a week at varying times so people can find one that fits their schedule, notes HelpGuide.
