I have contacted a friend in Nairobi, Kenya and asked if he has access to any information on recovery groups in Senegal. It's a longshot. Both Nairobi and South Africa are worlds away from Senegal.

I'll do some more digging. I know a couple people in Johannesburg but unfortunately they are not sober, but perhaps they might also have access to a directory from Senegal. I'll give it a whirl.

Aloha- Toby

Hi thanks for your help so far. Please let me know.

I am a member of the committee that responds to the "urgent" help requests that are generated when peopel hit the urgent help buttons on the various web sites accross the internet. I decided to try this forum as in my internet search I noted one of the members state that they had a friend in Senegal. A long shot I know.. but always worth a try.

thanks again

Gary

Does anyone have any contacts in Senegal for someone who needs twelfth stepping by phone e-mail or in person in Senegal.

Please let me know, or can you please ask any of your contacts in Africa.

I know this thread is almost 4 years old but I just moved to Senegal and I am sober. If you still have the contact info of this person and he or she is still in country, I would love to get in touch. The only other sober person I know in country just moved back to the USA and I'm looking for more sober people!!! Thanks!

Hello sober in Senegal !

Well its great to hear from you . I cannot believe that my message of 4 years ago would get a reply.. and I have just spotted it in my spam folder.

I dont know hat happened to that person who was looking for help, but we did get a request for help back in March. Would you be willing to contact them if I can get some contact details?

Thanks and take care.. feel free to e-mail me at londongaryw@googlemail.com

I came recently to Dakar and Senegal and have spent a whole week looking for contacts for any alcoholic here or meetings but have not had even one.

I know I need a meeting and will soon get desperate as this is the only way thta I can be sober.

Pls help. Iam willing to share my tel and emailk with any alcoholic in Dakar Senegal.

Iam scared of what can happen to me without a meeting or sober contact.

Dear Gary,

 

Someone contacted me and I now have information that there is a weekly Tuesdays meeeting in Dakar City in Senegal at a place called Ouakam.

I will be attending my first meeting here next tuesday on 30th May 2013 and Iam really excited to have found a place to meet with people who know my disease and understand me.

God Bless all of you for the concerns and words of encouragement. AA is truly a family.

 

thx again. John.

Hey!  I am looking for a meeting in Senegal.  I have tried a couple of numbers I was given with no luck.  I found some info on the aa.org site that said there were Tuesday meetings (time unknown) at a place called Oukam near a shopping center called Dakar City.  Does anybody know anything else.  I will start a meeting if there isn't one already.

Hi everyone. I'm not familiar with this site yet. I applied to join the Peace Corps and I'm eligible for programs in Senegal and Cameroon. I couldn't find any meetings in Senegal on the international directory. Are there indeed any meetings? How do people contact each other on this site to find meetings?
