What is AA?

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their mutual experience, strength and hope to solve their common problem and help others recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no fees or dues for AA membership; we are supported by our own contributions.

AA is not affiliated with any sect, religion, political party, organization or institution, does not wish to intervene in controversies, does not endorse or oppose any cause.

Our primary objective is to stay sober and to help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.

How do I join a group?

Just look in our National Group Directory for the group nearest you, check the time and days of the session, and introduce yourself by mentioning that you want information on how to stop drinking. If it is for a family member, mention that you want information on AA for a loved one or friend. You can also call us at 800 216 92 31 and we will be happy to give you advice.

How does Alcoholics Anonymous work?

Alcoholics Anonymous groups work through one and a half hour sessions in group therapy of mutual help, attendance is voluntary and its services are free of charge.
