Springfield is the most populated city in New England which gives its numbers to the AA groups and 12 step meetings in the area too. Springfield goes by several nicknames one of the most well-known being “The city of firsts”. It is fairly close to Hartford, CT so those in nearby Connecticut can also find their AA meetings in Springfield if they wish to. Springfield is also home to the “knowledge corridor” so the AA’ers in this area probably are pretty intelligent. Springfield attracts over 19,000 university students per year which means plenty of drinking but also plenty of young recovery going on too. Springfield is definitely home to some great 12 step meetings if you are in the area and looking for some recovery.
