AA Road to Sobriety Group – Marine Lines: The Archdiocese through its understanding of an addict and the problems thereof threw open its doors. Classrooms were given to conduct meetings weekly in the church or school premises. This was a big boost to those who needed assistance. The group formed in January 1978 named itself The Road to Sobriety. It had members from the area and outside that began to reach out to those suffering. Its success is seen in the number of members who are now away from their addiction one day at a time. They form the backbone of the group and work towards having everyone that comes though its doors get the message of sobriety and remain sober with an improvement in family life as described in the 12 step program of AA prescribed for a better living.
Currently meetings are conducted every Sunday at 7:00 p.m. The group also conducts Night Vigils and Testimonials are held in Church to encourage families come forward and seek help for a better life.
