Welcome to Alcoholics Anonymous

  • From October 22 2021 All Department of Health Covid-19 Restrictions on Drug and Alcohol support groups and treatment programmes will be removed.
    • The latest guidelines are available here.
  • Please remember that there are many members that reply on this website to find meetings.
  • If your group doesn’t let us know that you are back open, the still suffering alcoholic will find it difficult to find your meeting.
  • In the normal way, please keep us informed of all meeting changes.
  • The wellbeing of our staff continues to be our priority. In line with the easing of restrictions, we hope to be in a position to reopen our office shortly. Until then, the General Service Office remains closed to the Public. 
  • Literature Orders continue to be available via our Online Shop, but for delivery only.
  • Click and Collect is not available. 

PREAMBLE: 

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 A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.  

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation 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.

The Road Back

Those of us in AA first came to AA because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We didn’t want to admit that we could never drink 'safely'.  We decided to try and face up to what alcohol had done to us. Only you can decide if you have a problem with alcohol. Our DVD tells the stories of four people who made that decision. Visit our 'New to AA>The Road Back DVD' page to watch the full DVD online or watch our Irish Sign Language or Subtitle versions.
