This website offers information about Alcoholics Anonymous in the Fredericksburg, VA area. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

The Fellowship of AA

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.


What AA Does

AA is an informal society of more than 2 million recovering alcoholics throughout the world. The AA program, as set forth in the Twelve Steps to recovery, offers the alcoholic an opportunity to develop a satisfying way of life free from alcohol.

AA is nonprofessional – it doesn’t have clinics, doctors, counsellors or psychologists. All members are themselves recovering from alcoholism. There is no central authority controlling how AA groups operate. It is up to the members of each group to decide what they do. However, the AA program of recovery has proved to be so successful that almost every group follows it in very similar ways.

AA is not a religious organization nor is it affiliated with any religious body. It welcomes members of all religions, agnostics and atheists alike. You don’t have to sign up or achieve anything to be a member. You’re a member of a group if you choose to be. You can come and go as you please. No one is “in charge” of a group. We work through the offer of help and suggestion only. No one can tell you what you should or shouldn’t do.

AA works through members telling their stories of what we used to be like, what happened and what we are like now. The AA program, known as The Twelve Steps, provides a framework for self-examination and a road to recovery, free of alcohol.


What AA Does NOT Do

  1. Make medical or psychiatric diagnoses or prognoses, or offer advice.
  2. Provide detox or nursing services, hospitalization, drugs, housing, jobs, money or other welfare services.
  3. Accept any money for its services or contributions from outside sources.
  4. Provide letters of reference to parole boards, lawyers, court officials, social agencies, employers, etc.
  5. Engage in or support education, research, or professional treatment. Our recovery is based on sharing our experience, strength and hope with each other, that we may solve our common problem; more importantly, our continued sobriety depends upon helping others to recover from alcoholism.

Responsibility Pledge

I am responsible. When anyone anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that, I am responsible.
