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.
We will put you in touch with a member of Alcoholics Anonymous.
If you want to someone now via email, AA members from around the world are available to help, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: email here
We have moved from the 285 Prideaux location (Nanaimo) and are continuing to offer services virtually. You can still contact us by phone or email to get help, support, information and to purchase literature.
