Preamble: 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.

This site was introduced into service on June 17, 2001, to furnish information only. We believe that there is no subsitute for personal contact with other alcoholics and we strongly urge anyone with a drinking problem to attend a meeting of his or her choice, as listed in this site.
