What is A.A.?
Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.
In the Rochester Area, Alcoholics Anonymous has over 400 meetings each week. Visit our Meeting List page to find a meeting near you, or call our central office at 585-232-6720 for additional information.

You can also find links to the basic text of our fellowship below:
THE TWELVE STEPS OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS: A.A.’s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.
THE TWELVE TRADITIONS OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS: (Short Form) A.A.’s Twelve Traditions apply to the life of the Fellowship itself. They outline the means by which A.A. maintains its unity and relates itself to the world about it, the way it lives and grows.
