Text Box: Alcoholics Anonymous in Southern Illinois
Text Box: A.A. Preamble
       Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women that 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 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 achieve sobriety.
