What is AA?

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.
