Friendship House is a legendary AA clubhouse in the Nashville sober community. Better known as “202,” it serves the Middle Tennessee community as a gateway to recovery from alcoholism. Conveniently located in midtown since 1963, 202 is accessible to both business people and down-on-their luck drunks in downtown Nashville.

Friendship House has provided a refuge for recovery for tens of thousands of people in Middle Tennessee over the last fifty years. Many of the men and women who leave a treatment program find their way to meetings at 202 to continue their journey toward recovery.

Friendship House Is One of the Most Reputable AA Clubhouses in Nashville

People share experience, strength and hope with others. You’ve probably heard, “You have to give it away to keep it.” And that’s what their clubhouse is all about. One supporter exclaimed that, “coming to this clubhouse was a life changing experience for me. This is the place where I learned what life is all about. It changed everything about me. The people here taught me to treat every human being with respect, and that every man and woman contributes to my sobriety and way of life.”

Friendship House is an invaluable resource – a special place, a spiritual place, a place of healing – which passes along the gift of sobriety to alcoholics and addicts. Our goal is the ability to provide a safe haven for the next fifty years. We have remained self-sufficient, relying on dues, donations, fundraisers and special events to pay our operating expenses. We are the primary AA resource for state and metro drug courts and the many compassionate treatment centers in the Nashville area.
