Do you know an alcoholic?

There are also resources for friends and family of alcoholics. Al-Anon is a fellowship for anyone with an alcoholic in their life. See the links below.

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 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.

-From the Preamble of Alcoholics Anonymous


The A.A. program is guided by a set of principles that help us to grow, to recover, and to be of service to others. They help us to work our program to the best of our ability on an individual, group, and community level.


Unity, Service, and Recovery allow us to work in harmony with one another to achieve our primary purpose. There are several levels of service that help our program stay strong. See the links below for more info about service
