The Showbiz AA meeting is a recovery meeting for those who have a need. Showbiz AA has been meeting at Arts Centre Melbourne since 1992 when a group of actors and performers decided to have a different AA meeting that would be more industry-centric and maintain total confidentiality.
At these meetings were striving performers and “arrived “celebrities who shared their stories of recovery with each other. The lifestyle of artists and performers can be as challenging as the burden of discretion regarding publicity and press. Part of AA’s policy is low key publicity and attracting members through word of mouth. This helps to ensure that personal anonymity is maintained.
In 2018 after a short break, meetings have resumed with the continued support of Arts Centre Melbourne. The scope of members has broadened to include professionals, artists, performers, and business travellers. Many of the younger members attend due to the proximity to the city. It is a small and friendly group.
Meetings are held from 6pm to 7pm on Mondays (excluding Public holidays) at Arts Centre Melbourne.
