Alcoholics Anonymous of South West Michigan

“The feeling of having shared a common peril is one element in the powerful cement which binds us”

Alcoholics Anonymous District 1 serves the following communities: Benton Harbor, Bridgman, Buchanan, Coloma, Eau Claire, Niles, Saint Joe, Riverside, Sodus, and Waterviliet. District 1 is included in Area 34 A.A., which includes towns and communities that move up the Coast of Lake Michigan into parts of our Upper Peninsula.

A.A. PREAMBLE© Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people 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.
