Angela Corelis -

For more information please contact Angela at (322) 222-3906 or acorelis(at)
The local Alano Club offering the Self Help 12 Step Groups: AA, ALANON, NA, CODA, OA, and NIC.ANON, announced that after 22 years they need to move to a new location. Fortunately, they were able to find a new meeting place nearby, so they’ll still easily be accessed by public transportation and will also be able to offer parking on the street.

Here are various locations around the Banderas Bay area that have meetings, where they are and who the contact person is. Please note that this is the most current information we have and is subject to change.
