Daily AA and NA meetings are held in Plettenberg Bay, see the weekly times below. There is a mammoth recovery community that is fast becoming well known around the world as a recovery capital. Socially, this recovery community is invaluable as there are always a kaleidoscope of different people from around the world who have their own stories to tell about their past, their recovery journey and of course the amazing promise of a bright future as better than well!
The many coffee shops around Plettenberg Bay usually have at least a couple of fellows in recovery gracing their doors at one time or another. It lends for a welcoming feeling that brings with it a sense of belonging. Plettenberg Bay is highly special in this way. The way it brings people in recovery, from many addiction treatment centres, along different points in their recovery together.
Pathways clients attend at least three AA and NA meetings in Plett per week. We suggest this as a minimum for anyone in early recovery which continues from 3-12 months, according to the, 2015 DSM-5 Psychiatric manual.
Pathways also have their own Big Book Group on Fridays 4:00 on premises at Pathways Plett rehab, where all are welcome. However please note the Big Book meetings are seasonal. firstname.lastname@example.org, for inquiries.

What are the closed and open meetings of AA?
The purpose of all A.A. group meetings, as the Preamble states, is for A.A. members to share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. Toward this end, A.A. groups have both open and closed meetings.
Closed Meetings: Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon Family Groups, and Adult Children of Alcoholics meetings are generally Closed meetings unless otherwise stated. Closed meetings are limited to members and prospective members only and listed as Closed in the meeting schedules. Closed meetings are for A.A. members only, or for those who have a drinking problem and “have a desire to stop drinking.”
Open Meetings: Open meetings are for anyone who is interested in AA, Al-Anon or ACOA. If a meeting is Open it will be so designated on the published schedule. Open meetings can be attended by students, professionals, and other non-members interested in learning more about the recovery programs. The designation of a meeting as Open does not change the meetings primary purpose of the group. Each group has but one primary purpose – to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers (From Tradition Five). Thus, in summary, Open meetings are available to anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous’ program of recovery from alcoholism. Non-alcoholics may attend open meetings as observers.
