Alcoholics Anonymous


Author(s):
Abstract:
Alcoholics Anonymous of North Carolina began with the first meeting in Shelby. Following that Charlotte, Raleigh, Asheville, Durham, Greensboro, High Point, Fayetteville, and Statesville started chapters of the group with further organizations planned throughout the state. Most of these branches facilitate meetings and organize financial help for those needing hospitalization, the one exception being Charlotte which runs a nursing home for those wishing to \"dry-out.\" No state statistics are given but it was assumed that there were 20,000 members nationally in 1947.
