Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experiences, strength and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. There are no dues or fees for AA membership- we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics or organisation, does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help others to achieve sobriety. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
Self-referral or other. Prospective AA members could just turn up at a meeting, but it's more usual for telephone contact to be made first, when a newcomer can talk with and question an AA member, and sometimes then, if necessary, be taken along to a meeting.
