About this event
Alcoholics Anonymous is a group of men and women who can help if someone wants to quit drinking. Maybe their life has become unmanageable due to heavy drinking, or they are consuming alcohol in a way that they have identified as unhealthy.
This professional forum will explain more about AA in the area and how we can connect with the alcoholic who still suffers.

Professionals who work with alcoholics share a common goal with Alcoholics Anonymous. To help the suffering alcoholic, achieve sobriety and lead a healthy and productive life.
The aim of the workshop is to provide professionals who support alcoholics with an understanding of the AA program; what we have to offer and how we can help those with a drinking problem. There will be portions of local AA members who have become sober at different times in their lives as well as a portion of an Al-Anon member, an independent fellowship, who provides help to anyone whose life is in trouble. or has been affected by someone else’s drinking.
Participants include professionals from local charities, drug addiction organizations, blue light services, general practitioners, nurses, medical and care workers, representatives of religious communities.
What is Alcoholics Anonymous?
Alcoholics Anonymous is an international association of men and women who have had a drinking problem. He is unprofessional, self-sufficient, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost anywhere. There is no age or education requirement. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about their drinking problem.
What are Alcoholics Anonymous doing?
AA members share their experiences with anyone seeking help with a drinking problem; they offer person-to-person support or “sponsorship” to the alcoholic who comes to AA from any source.
AA’s program, featured in our Twelve Steps, provides an alcoholic with a way to develop a fulfilling life without consuming alcohol.
This program is discussed at AA group meetings.
