Can't Stop Drinking?
Alcoholics Anonymous is a 12-step recovery program, offering the alcoholic an opportunity to develop a satisfying way of life, free from alcohol. It is a voluntary, worldwide fellowship whose members meet together to attain and maintain sobriety. Our recovery is based on shared experience, strength, and hope with each other, that we may solve our common problem; more importantly, our continued sobriety depends on helping others to recover from alcoholism.
