A.A. is not a religious society and is not allied with any organization or sect. A.A. members include people from all major religious bodies, agnostics and atheists. While spiritual values are part of the A.A. program, members are free to interpret those values as they think best, or not at all.
What is Alcoholics Anonymous?
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience,
strength and hope with each other.
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.
