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.

Tips for the Holidays

Holiday parties without liquid spirits may still seem a dreary prospect to new AA's. But many of us have enjoyed the happiest holidays of our lives sober--an idea we would never have dreamed of, wanted, or believed possible when drinking.
