What is A.A.? - An Overview

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who come together to solve their drinking problem.  It doesn’t cost anything to attend A.A. meetings. There are no age or education requirements to participate. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about their drinking problem.  A.A.’s primary purpose is to help alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

A.A. has a solution and that’s not an empty promise.  Alcoholics Anonymous has been helping alcoholics recover for more than 80 years.  A.A.’s program of recovery is built on the simple foundation of one alcoholic sharing with another.  For more information, select the options below.

If you or someone you care about has a drinking problem, A.A. might have a solution.  A.A. has helped more than two million alcoholics stop drinking.  Recovery works through one alcoholic sharing their experience with another.

People who think they have a drinking problem are welcome to attend any A.A. meeting. Meetings are available locally or online.

Anyone with a desire to stop drinking is welcome, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, income, or profession. And it’s free.

You can just sit and listen and learn more about recovery, or you can share about your situation. It’s completely up to you.

A.A. is made up of alcoholics helping alcoholics recover.  Al-Anon Family Groups is another Twelve Step program of recovery. Their members are made up of people concerned with someone’s drinking problem.  In Al-Anon members have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others who have faced similar problems.
