Houston NA alternatives

I have been looking for a NA alternative in the Houston area for a while now and have had no luck. Does anyone here have any suggestions of groups, or maybe places to look for one?

Celebrate Recovery meets at 7 pm at a church in the Clear Lake area. I have not been to it but know a person that goes and likes it.

I could be wrong, but since this is the 'secular' forum, suggesting Celebrate Recovery (a Christ-based recovery program) is a tad....oh, I don't know, out of line?.....offensive.....?

I live in Houston, and I honestly don't know any alternatives to NA, but then, both AA and NA worked for me.........even as an atheist.

I wish I could help more, me if you want to talk.....

I'm sorry, I don't know of anything else in our area. Have you tried different NA meetings? I do NA, and have found that certain meetings are more secular than others. PM me if you'd like-

I know this post is a little old but I wanted to reply in case anyone else finds this. There is a SMART Recovery meeting in Houston. It is the best 12 step alternative out there with the strongest national support and online meetings. It has a recovery rate several times higher than 12 step recovery and that has been supported by every independent comparative study done. They have their own recovery book and it is based in medical science and not religion. I encourage anyone who cannot buy the "Holy Intervention" theory of AA to try looking at this group for a more rational and realistic approach to recovery. It really works.

You can find the local meetings, including the one in Houston at:

Please email me for further information or if you have a request to see the independent studies.

It is very frustrating that in the 4th largest city in the country, that there are not more Agnostic/Atheist in-person meeting options.

I'm in Houston too. They do have SMART meetings here. Just go to the SMART page and click on meetings in your area, then find your city, and a list will come up. I also think it should be easy to find agnostic/atheist AA meetings.
