We provide transportation to these and other self-support groups local to New Brunswick, NJ. For all addiction treatment clients groups like these are crucial to a successful recovery.


These are 12-step meetings that are for the family, loved ones and friends of people with alcohol and/or drug problems. Al-Anon teaches its members about self-care, limits and boundaries. It is a place to meet people who have gone through what you are going through now.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is the original 12-step program and was founded by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in 1935. Open meetings are for anyone who wants to learn more, while closed meetings are only for people who recognize that they have a problem with alcohol. People who have never gone to AA before should go to an open speaker, open discussion or open beginner meeting. Meetings typically last one hour. Some meetings are highly religious, while others are quite secular. Most people in AA have also abused other substances as well.

Narcotics Anonymous

NA is a 12-step program t adapted from the AA program. Like AA, meetings are open or closed. They usually last for 60 to 90 minutes. NA meetings are not substance-specific and encourage members to address the disease of addiction, rather than one specific drug.

Gambler’s Anonymous

Smart Recovery

There are two Smart Recovery meetings in NJ that are open to the public. The meetings are in Piscataway (M) and Morristown (Th). One must call before going there. Like AA/NA, they are free. Unlike AA/NA, they are led by a volunteer professional. The meetings are based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT).


Nar-Anon is a twelve-step program for friends and family members of drug addicts. Nar-Anon is complementary to, but separate from, Narcotics Anonymous (NA), analogous to Al-Anon with respect to Alcoholics Anonymous.
