It takes courage to ask for help or admit to having a problem. Only you can decide if Alcoholics Anonymous is right for you. Here are some ways to see if A.A. is right for you.


Court Mandated to AA?

Are you attending A.A. involuntarily—perhaps as a result of a drunk driving or domestic situation? If so, the pamphlet So You've Been Sent to A.A. may be helpful.


Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap (BTG) is a program for AA newcomers. If you are leaving treatment or incarceration, or you are newly sober, the BTG Request Form can provide help.
