Yes there are. Google it. I have to suggest that you attend meetings in person. It is a fellowship and it will benefit you most to be face to face with the people whom you will share your recovery with.
Online AA meetings are not unlike this place. In a sense, you will get better information and support on here. It is better to go to the meetings. I don't know if you have been to many or not but you will like some of them and not like some of them. Some are not open discussion, some you can't talk about drugs at, but technically you can learn something at all of them if you listen to some of the storys. Alcohol addiction is not unlike any other chemical dependency. Some of the uppers and downers work differntley but they are all hard to come off of and listening to people's struggles and seeing the tears that fall from the overwhelming stories of sobreity is something you can only experience first hand and it will help you gain spirituality and power by attending them.
I attend both AA & NA. NA classifies alcohol as one of the many drugs. I'm cross~addicted to alcohol and opiates so NA works the best for me. Like what's been said, ain't nothing like the real thing. Ive been on web meetings, but not as good as eye to eye. At a meeting there's the meeting in the parking lot before the meeting, the meeting and then the meeting after the meeting. It's fellowship, folks getting together to solve a common problem. No leaders, just volunteers to help with setting up the meeting. I can't seem to stay clean without my meetings. Best of luck to you.
