Since the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) in 1935, programs offering opportunity for recovery from alcoholism and other addictions have undergone vast changes. The Internet has created nearly limitless opportunities for recovering people and those seeking recovery to find both meetings and places where they can gather virtually and discuss personal recovery. While the recovery community online is led by those with alcoholism, other groups have found a place in cyberspace. Library professionals in the behavioral science fields have access to an amazing and useful array of online resources for anyone seeking information on recovery. As with any information on the Web, these resources can change quickly; regular review of them is strongly suggested.
