The A.A. Preamble

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.

Meeting Closures

Please note since many facilities have temporarily closed, some meetings have temporarily shutdown or relocated.  Some have started using online meeting apps or phone conference calls to conduct meetings.

We will try to keep the closures of meetings up to date and in the Meeting Guide App you may see the designation "TEMPORARY CLOSURE" for meetings we have been told are temporarily cancelled, but ultimately these temporary changes like all changes, relies on information from the meeting contacts, GSRs, Chairpersons and meeting attendees.  Word of mouth is a powerful tool, so please do let us know if you know of changes in meeting status and share that information with your fello.
