Alcoholics Anonymous of Florida is a fellowship of men and women who have a drinking problem. We are a nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical organization that brings together people from all walks of life who want healing. We share our experiences, our hope, and our strength that we may solve our problems and support others in their recovery from alcoholism. Our only membership requirement is a desire to stop drinking. We have no dues, fees, or other conditions. We are not allied with any sect, denomination, political organization, or other institutions. Our primary purpose is to stay sober ourselves and aid those around us in their efforts to achieve sobriety. By sharing our stories of struggle and triumph, we encourage each other and lift each other in our lowest moments.
The State of Florida is an individual Service Area named Alcoholics Anonymous Area 14 and is itself divided into 200 groups in 30 districts. We meet regularly in over 100 Florida’s cities and towns and welcome in anyone who is looking for help to escape their addiction. We are committed to cultivating a welcoming, safe, and diverse community, and wherever you attend you can be sure you will be among others just like yourself.
Our approach is centered around twelve steps that move us forward in our journey to abstinence and sobriety. No therapists or psychologists attend our meetings unless they are there joining us on the journey out of addiction. By building a community of support and encouragement as we work through the twelve steps of sobriety, we achieve lasting results that not only free us from the hold of alcohol but also set us on a path to a better, more fulfilling life.
