Many Deaf people find it difficult, if not impossible, to find an accessible Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) group they can attend for support and encouragement when dealing with alcohol issues. Even if a mostly hearing group provides an interpreter for meetings, the varying quality and consistency of interpreted meetings can be discouraging. Good news for Frederick, Maryland folks who are looking for an AA group - a new group is forming this month. See more information below. For those of you who live in other cities and states, please send in your local Deaf AA group information in the comments section. We’d love to know where other Deaf, and even interpreted, AA groups are being held.
Deaf AA Group Frederick, Maryland
March 20, 2009 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Community Service for the Deaf (CSD) 425 Prospect Blvd Frederick, MD 21701
I e-mail ASC last month.. They have not inform me about the deaf aa meeting at CSD ? Do they still run the meeting every week ? I am eager to know what is happening. I went to Hagerstown Intergroup and Frederick Intergroup... Nothing heard from any deaf people who need help ?? It seem no one interesting to join the meeting. I am sober since Sept 22, 2007... Hope and Pray for outside who suffer as no bed, no food and need some help. I am here and get you on our wagon and move the best adventure to change life.. Peace and Hang on..
We already connected via email and as we explained, ASC was only advertising the group for CSD. We have nothing to do with the meeting itself. It was our understanding that the meeting, unfortunately, was cancelled due to lack of participation. You may want to check with DASAM-
Deaf Addictions Services at Maryland for local resources. ASC does provide individual addiction counseling, but we do not offer groups right now. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
