  • Slide 1 - Alcoholics Anonymousfor the Professional Area 69 State of Utah
  • Slide 2 - Tradition 11 Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio and films.
  • Slide 3 - The Preamble of Alcoholics Anonymous 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.
  • Slide 4 - The Preamble of Alcoholics Anonymous 2 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.
  • Slide 5 - The Preamble of Alcoholics Anonymous 3 Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
  • Slide 6 - What is AA? Alcoholics Anonymous is an international Fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. AA is not a religion, nor is it affiliated with any religion. ∙ It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, nondenominational, multiracial, apolitical and available almost everywhere.
  • Slide 7 - What is AA? 2 There are no age or educational requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.
  • Slide 8 - What is AA? 3 AA promises personal anonymity because acoholism carries a great social stigma.
  • Slide 9 - What does AA do? At AA meetings members share their experience with anyone seeking help with a drinking problem and give person-to-person support or “sponsorship” to the alcoholics coming to AA. 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.
  • Slide 10 - What does AA do? 2 Through the example and friendship of the recovered alcoholics in AA, new members are encouraged to stay away from a drink one day at a time.
  • Slide 11 - What AA does not do AA does not determine if someone is an alcoholic- That is left up to the individual. Make medical or psychiatric diagnoses or prognoses, or offer medical advice.
  • Slide 12 - What AA does not do 2 Provide drying-out or nursing services, hospitalization, drugs, housing, jobs money or welfare services Accept any money for its services or contributions from outside sources.
  • Slide 13 - What AA does not do 3 Provide letters of reference to parole boards, lawyers, court officials, social agencies, employers, etc. Engage in or support education, research, or professional treatment. Group conscience dictates wether or not a court card will be signed.
  • Slide 14 - Types of Meetings Open meetings are open to alcoholics and non-alcoholics. Open speaker meetings- open to alcoholics and non-alcoholics (Attendance at an open AA meting is the best way to learn what AA is, what it does and what it does not do.) At speaker meetings, AA members describe their experiences with alcohol, how they came to AA, and how their lives have changed as a result of AA.
  • Slide 15 - Types of Meetings 2 Open discussion meetings- one member speaks briefly about his or her drinking experience, and then leads a discussion on AA recovery, experience, strength and hope. It is encouraged that discussion be limited to problems with alcohol.
  • Slide 16 - Types of Meetings 3 Many meetings may differ slightly; group conscience dictates how a meeting is run, as well as it’s structure and format. However, the primary purpose of any AA group is always the same- the recovery from alcoholism.
  • Slide 17 - Closed Meetings Attendance at closed meetings is limited to person’s who have a desire to stop drinking.
  • Slide 18 - Singleness of Purpose and Problems other than Alcohol Tradition Three- The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. Alcoholism and drug addiction are often referred to as “substance abuse” or “chemical dependency.”
  • Slide 19 - Singleness of Purpose and Problems other than Alcohol 2 Alcoholics and non-Alcoholics are therefore often introduced to AA meetings through professional intervention: courts, judges, physicians, etc.
  • Slide 20 - Singleness of Purpose and Problems other than Alcohol 3 Anyone may attend open AA meetings. It is often encouraged that participants confine their discussion to problems with alcohol. People with problems other than alcoholism are can be members if they have a drinking problem.
  • Slide 21 - Problems other than alcohol Even though we are not affiliated with other 12 step programs, we do cooperate with them. If someone has a problem other than alcohol, we will refer them to the correct program. Our AA central offices have information on other 12 step programs.
