AA meetings

by Billy_Mac Online Now Sep 14, 2007 at 8:14 AM

I have a friend who is travelling to Saudi within the next 2 months probably & would like to hear of any meetings in the dharhan area where she will be living & working.
She was in touch with someone in AA over there but they have lost touch.
Any information on this would be most gratefully recieved .

    It is against the law in Saudi Arabia to purchase, possess or use alcoholic
    beverages and narcotics. There is some available but the religious police search for it and will arrest those who have it. Punishments include public lashing and deporation. Enforcement of the laws used to be slightly lax in Dharhan but still is risky. That should reduce her need for AA meetings.
