What is Alcoholics AnonymousAlcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an international organization founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in Akron, Ohio. AA’s stated “primary purpose” is to help alcoholics “stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety”. With other early members, Bill Wilson and Bob Smith developed AA’s Twelve Step program of spiritual and character development. AA’s initial Twelve Traditions were introduced in 1946 to help the fellowship be stable and unified while disengaged from “outside issues” and influences.The Traditions recommend that members remain anonymous in public media, altruistically help other alcoholics, and that AA groups avoid official affiliations with other organizations. They also advise against dogma and coercive hierarchies. Subsequent fellowships such as Narcotics Anonymous have adopted and adapted the Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions to their respective primary purposes.AA is not inpatient recovery. If you suffer from chronic alcoholism and need to speak to someone about inpatient rehab, then call one of the numbers below. Alcoholism is deadly and quitting cold turkey is not recommended as it is unsafe and could cause death.

Recovering From a Mental Crisis is Possible
Most people with mental health and drug addiction problems can get better. Treatment and recovery are ongoing processes that happen over time. The first step is getting help. Four major dimensions support a life in recovery: a) Health: make informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional wellbeing, b) Home: have a stable and safe place to live, c) Purpose: engage in meaningful daily activities, such as a job or school, volunteering, caring for your family, or being creative. Work for independence, income, and resources to participate in society, and d) Community: build relationships and social networks that provide support Our trusted centers provide a holistic treatment plan that includes all these dimensions.
