Find A.A. Meetings

At A.A. meetings you meet alcoholics who can share AA's message of recovery. An A.A. meeting is where you can create fellowship bonds and connect with other people in recovery.

For A.A. meetings in metrowest and central Massachusetts visit the WAI Meetings Page. Smartphone users can use Meeting Guide, a mobile app available from AA.org or Google Play or the Apple App Store.


The "Big Book"

Alcoholics Anonymous, nicknamed "The Big Book," is the basic text of AA. The Big Book outlines A.A.'s program of recovery through A.A.’s Twelve Steps, and contains a collection of personal stories of recovered alcoholics. You can order a printed copy of the Big Book from aaWorcester.org, or read it online in PDF format here: aa.org/pages/en_US/alcoholics-anonymous. An audiobook version is available at aa.org/pages/en_US/alcoholics-anonymous-audio-version. For an American Sign Language version: aa.org/pages/en_US/alcoholics-anonymous-asl.
