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 a desire to stop drinking.

There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA 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.

November is Gratitude Month 2016

We would like to remind you that many local groups celebrate Gratitude Month in November and now’s the time to discuss with your group about participation in Gratitude Month for this year. Many groups pass a second collection basket during the month of November sending the contributions directly to Central Office.

We are sincerely appreciative of Gratitude Month contributions, and for all the support from the fellowship which allows Central Office to fulfill its mission of assisting the alcoholic who still suffers.
