What is A.A.?

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people 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.

Worried About Your Drinking?

Only you can decide whether you want to give Alcoholics Anonymous a try—whether you think it can help you. Admitting you might need help, or admitting that you’re an alcoholic, takes courage. To help you understand whether A.A. may be right for you take the Self Assessment – a set of questions about our drinking we tried to answer honestly.
