Alcoholics Anonymous – Portland Central Service Office
Self-Help, Support and Advocacy
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 AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; they are self-supporting through their 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. Their primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety. This office services the State of Maine and Southern New Brunswick. There are over 800 meetings in the State of Maine and southern New Brunswick every week. To find a meeting near you go to their website.
