My husband finally went to a NA meeting the other night for the first time. He was excited about going and I told him how proud I was of him. When he got home I asked how it was and he said the room was full of anger. People were yelling at eachother, the person in charge of the meeting made negative remarks about each person in the room and he was never even acknowleged as a new comer in the room. He read in his NA book that the new comer should always be the focused on at their first session. He said he felt angry and he didn't want to go back. I suggested that we should go to another city to find another group but when we looked it up online the next closest one is 40 miles away. I am so mad that this was such a negative experience for him. What do we do now?
