Depending on the addiction(s) involved, people will typically select twelve-step groups that speak to their particular issue(s). In the case of multiple chemical dependencies, most individuals will use Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). There’s no hard and fast rule, but you’ll want to find groups in which you feel relatively comfortable. In many areas, especially urban or more populated communities, there will be groups geared toward professionals; women’s and men’s groups; and groups geared for gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals.
