Is there an aa type group that does not have a religious focus?

In brief: Good question.

Aa per se is not asking you to be religious; it is asking you to admit that you are powerless to stop drinking by yourself, and that there is a higher power that can help.
What (if anything) you call that higher power is up to you - but that symbolic surrender appears to be a key ingredient in the success of aa.
