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.

If you or someone you love has a problem with alcohol, we can help. We are recovering alcoholics ourselves and are commited to helping other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Alcoholism will inevitably kill the alcoholic due to the progressive nature of the disease. It's a simple message but one that needs to be said.
We men and women who are in A.A., joined because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We hated to admit that we could never drink safely or drink socially. We found that many people suffered from the same guilt, loneliness and hopelessness that we did. We found that we had these feelings because we had the disease of alcoholism.
If you know someone who needs help with a drinking problem, contact us. We will assist you (or your friend) in any way we can.
