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.

Sober Outside Services (SOS)

Our first orientation will be held at Central Office, 1821 Sacramento St at Van Ness, SF on August 16th at 1pm.

The mission of Sober Outside Services is to serve A.A. members whose ongoing circumstances prevent them from attending regular A.A. meetings.

We are looking for volunteers with a year or more of sobriety to commit to taking a meeting to such people at least once a month.

If you are interested in becoming part of this effort, please email  Please help us spread the word to both people who might volunteer for this service, and also for those who might need it.
