THE GENERAL PURPOSE OF THE NORTH COUNTY OFFICE of Alcoholics Anonymous:
- A meeting and gathering facility of Alcoholics Anonymous which facilitates a 12-step plan of action to aid in recovery from alcoholism.
- A telephone answering service to support the needs of the alcoholic who desires to stop drinking.
- Sale and distribution of conference approved literature of Alcoholics Anonymous and such other literature and items that may be pertinent to recovery from the disease of alcoholism.
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. • 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.
“Life will take on new meaning. To watch people recover, to see them help others, to watch loneliness vanish, to see a fellowship grow up about you you, to have a host of friends – this is an experience you must not miss.”
