And let's not forget just plain, boring Alcoholics Anonymous; the official site:

http://www.aa.org/

Mainsteam A.A. isn't full of Bible Thumpers, believe me.  You will find a huge proportion of agnostics, atheists and even some Buddhists, and the good thing about these meetings are that they're everywhere, and they're a brilliant support group, and once you recover, you're mission in life is to help other alcoholics recover.  There's even agnostic A.A. groups, but mainstream one's are fine also.

They're an excellent sangha, and they won't really care what religious - or non religious - background anyone has.

Any affiliation and connection with other people is the beautiful realization that love is the ultimate realization.
