There is a solution. You no longer have to live like this. You are not alone. You are not the first. If you think you have a drinking problem, and are looking to get to a meeting of alcoholics anonymous, we hope that this website will help you.
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 AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA 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.

WHO MANAGES CENTRAL OFFICE?
The office is staffed by one full-time, salaried employee who answers questions, makes referrals and sells books and literature.
Decisions and policies are made by an eight-member volunteer Board of Directors, plus two Alternates. Four members are elected from Sara-Mana Intergroup and four from General Service District 4, South Florida. Directors must have at least three years of sobriety and they serve overlapping terms.
The Board is guided by the Twelve Traditions, the guidelines published by GSO in New York and By-laws written by the first board members. Monthly Board reports are made at each service organization meeting. Central Office Board Meetings are open to all interested AA members.
