What is AA?
Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, nondenominational, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.
What does AA do?
   1. A.A. members share their experience with anyone seeking help with a drinking 
       problem they give person-to-person service or "sponsorship" to the alcoholic  
       coming to A.A. from any source.

   2. The A.A. program, set forth in our Twelve Steps, offers the alcoholic a way to 
       develop a satisfying life without alcohol.

   3. This program is discussed at A.A. group meetings.
What AA does not do?
A.A. does not:

    1. Furnish initial motivation for alcoholics to recover

    2. Solicit members

    3. Engage in or sponsor research

    4. Keep attendance records or case histories

    5. Join "councils" of social agencies

    6. Follow up or try to control its members

    7. Make medical or psychological diagnoses or prognoses

    8. Provide drying-out or nursing services, hospitalization, drugs, or any medical or
        psychiatric treatment

    9. Offer religious services

  10. Engage in education about alcohol

  11. Provide housing, food, clothing, jobs, money, or any other welfare or social services

  12. Provide domestic or vocational counseling

  13. Accept any money for its services, or any contributions from non-A.A. sources

  14. Provide letters of reference to parole boards, lawyers, court officials
What does the Twelve Steps do?
A.A.'s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.

Many people, non-alcoholics, report that as a result of the practice of AA's Twelve Steps, they have been able to meet other difficulties of life. They see in them a way to happy and effective living for many, alcoholic or not.
