Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

AA members are available to cooperate with you.
The purpose of the site is to furnish information only. We believe that there is no substitute for personal contact with other alcoholics and we strongly urge anyone with a drinking problem to attend a meeting of their choice.
Layout and design of this page is the work of the Public Information committee. Site content is voted upon by the DCM16C, DCM16D, PIC/PC Committee Chair and Webmaster.
"Public Information takes many forms - the simple sign outside a meeting place that says 'A.A. meeting tonight'; listing in local phone directories; distribution of A.A. literature; and radio and television shows using sophisticated media techniques.
Whatever the form, it comes down to 'one drunk carrying the message to another drunk,' whether through personal contact or through the use of third parties and the media." - Bill W.
