Alcoholics Anonymous - DISTRICT 5 A.A.

A.A. Primary Purpose

"The primary purpose of any A.A. group is to carry the A.A. message to alcoholics.  Experience with alcohol is one thing all A.A. members have in common.  It is misleading to hint or give the impression that A.A. solves other problems or knows what to do about drug addiction."
-AA Group pamphlet page 18

Struggling With Alcohol?

If you are struggling with alcohol, the first step is recognizing you need help.  At Alcoholics Anonymous, we know exactly how you feel. Our Central Office hotline is open 24/7 and ready to talk.  

Call us today!  541-548-0440.

Is A.A. For You?

Only you can decide whether you want to give Alcoholics Anonymous a try and whether you think it can help you. We who are in A.A. came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking.
