A.W.A.R.E. MEETING


Alcoholism is by no means, a disease experienced solely by the male gender. Women share many of the same afflictions and problems which men experience. Little in the past had been done with women in mind.

So it was in April, 1984, that a woman alcoholic named Juanita S., decided it was time to do something for her female alcoholic friends. A building was located at 3407 North East Ave., Panama City, Florida, and became the first "halfway house" in the Panama City area. Since this new activity of C.A.R.E. was not to be considered an AA group per se, it was named an A.W.A.R.E. Meeting.

Initially, open A.W.A.R.E. meetings were held each Sunday at 7:00 p.m. at this location. these meetings continued until early 1987 when, due to conflict with the male population, all meetings became closed meetings for women only. This approach has proven very effective since women are much more willing to discuss their own private problems with other women.

Currently, closed A.W.A.R.E. meetings are held every Sunday evening at 7:00p.m.at 3407 North East Ave., Panama City, Fl. These meetings are for women only.
