About us

 

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. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

• A.A. 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.

• Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

 

www.aaspain.org was posted on the internet on 24th March 2003 as a service to all the English-speaking AA fellowship in Spain. As there was no AA service body representing the whole of Spain (and still isn’t) this initiative was taken by individual members.

The website exists to provide information and contacts to those looking for AA (English) meetings or special events like conventions in Spain. Apart from the poem Drunks, all information is supplied solely by the designated officers of AA groups, Intergroups or Convention Committees. The site is now maintained by a small group of individual AA members who are based in different areas of Spain, and its minimal costs (less than €100 per year) are met by voluntary (7th tradition) donations. It does not, and will not, accept any outside contributions, and is not allied to or affiliated with any body outside AA. We operate in strict accordance with the provisions of the AA General Service Conference (2005) Guideline AA and Electronic Communications.

Since we do not have a single service body to whom to be accountable, we draw our authority from the universally-accepted AA Responsibility Declaration:

When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of AA always to be there. And for that, I am responsible.
