Women for Sobriety is an alternative to AA.

Women for SobrietyWomen for Sobriety is a woman’s group started in 1975 by Jean Kirkpatrick, a sociologist who achieved sobriety by reading Emerson and other metaphysical writers. She believed that women alcoholics had specific emotional needs not addressed by AA: depression, low self-esteem, excessive guilt, and loneliness.Participants may meet in person and also participate in moderated online discussion sessions and chat.  Although the Women for Sobriety program differs from AA, it does not contradict it, and many women belong to both groups.
