If you are concerned about your drinking, we sincerely hope you will visit a meeting or call us 24 hours a day at 785-823-3338. We believe you will find any AA member will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and listen to whatever is on your mind — no matter how personal or difficult it may be for you to talk about. Connecting with one another and sharing our experience is a foundational part of our continued recovery.
What is AA?
The AA Preamble provides an excellent introduction to what AA is all about. The Preamble is often read at the beginning of meetings and communicates the essence of our purpose, what we are, and what we are not.
The AA Preamble reads:
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.
