Des Moines, Iowa AA Meetings

Des Moines is the county seat of Polk County and the capital of the U.S. state of Iowa; part of the city extends into Warren County. If you live or work in the area, and are searching for AA meetings in Des Moines, our online directory of AA meetings in Iowa may help.

Addiction recovery usually involves making some significant lifestyle changes. These changes may differ for each recovering individual. Generally, anything that triggers the urge to drink alcohol or use other substances may need to be avoided, particularly in early recovery. Examples of triggers may include restaurants, bars, or other places that serve alcohol, people who you associate with drinking, and situations, such as those that cause high-stress levels.

Some problems cannot be avoided, for instance, when the workplace causes stress. Most people still have to work, but exploring the possibility of changing jobs or careers may be a lifestyle change that supports your recovery goals. Employing stress reduction strategies and other recovery tools can help when immediate lifestyle changes are impossible.

Participating in AA meetings can help fill an empty place in a person’s life where socialization and drinking activities used to be interlinked. AA meetings can provide a sober network of peers, as well as healthy sober activities. Alano clubs, sponsored by some AA groups, provide a place to participate in healthy social activities, such as sober family activities, sober group travel opportunities, and even sober cruises. Putting a sober support network in place that substitutes healthy lifestyle changes (such as getting involved in an Alano Club) for old, unhealthy behavioral patterns, can help strengthen a person’s recovery.
