How we can help you
Alcoholics Anonymous has many A.A. members and service committees who are available to provide professionals with information about Alcoholics Anonymous. A.A. has a long history of cooperating but not affiliating with outside organisations and being available to provide A.A. meetings or information about A.A. upon request.
For professionals working with people who have special needs we have A.A. material and literature in Braille, videos in American Sign Language, easy-to-read pamphlets, and much more.Dr. Vincent Dole, a pioneer in methadone treatment in the US for heroin addicts and for several years a trustee on the US General Service Board of AA, made the following statement: "The source of strength in A.A. is its single-mindedness. The mission of A.A. is to help alcoholics. A.A. limits what it is demanding of itself and its associates, and its success lies in its limited target. To believe that the process that is successful in one line guarantees success for another would be a very serious mistake." Consequently, we welcome the opportunity to share A.A. experience with those who would like to develop Twelve Step/Twelve Tradition programs for the nonalcoholic addict by using A.A. methods.
If you would wish any further information about Alcoholics Anonymous please call or write to the New Zealand General Service Office. We look forward to hearing from you and would be delighted to receive your phone call.
If you are a professional and wish us to send you further information please provide your postal mailing address so that we may send you the material.
Alcoholics at certain times have no mental defence against alcohol.
