Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people 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.
What Does NEPAIG Do?
CARRIES THE A.A. MESSAGE INTO FACILITIES
The Corrections Committee and Institutions Committee volunteer service members brings A.A. meetings into treatment centers, shelters, hospitals, and prisons throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Corrections Committee supplies A.A. conference approved literature to prisons throughout the area.
