If drinking has become a problem in your life and you want to stop, you CAN — and we can help.
All Group 1 A.A. meetings are open* unless otherwise specified and all meetings last about an hour. If you show up a few minutes early and introduce yourself, we can help you feel comfortable and can answer some of your questions. A.A. literature, as well as our Big Book (formally known as Alcoholics Anonymous), are available at meetings.
*Open meetings are available to anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous’ program of recovery from alcoholism. Nonalcoholics may attend open meetings as observers.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is the 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. Reprinted with permission of the A.A. Grapevine, Inc.
