A.A. Meetings in Portland

There are over 900 meetings per week in the Portland metro area; check our meeting schedule  for meeting times and locations. Attendance is always anonymous and free. So which meetings can you go to?

  • “Open” meetings – everyone is welcome, including family members, friends, and anyone curious about A.A.
  • “Closed” meetings – limited to anyone with a desire to stop drinking; if you think you may have a drinking problem and want to do something about it, you’re welcome to come.

If you want to keep drinking, that’s your business.  But if you want to stop, AA can help.

What Is A.A.?

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements, no dues or fees, and AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.

A.A. Preamble

The Preamble was introduced in the June 1947 issue of the AA Grapevine magazine and borrows much of its phrasing from the Foreword to the original edition of the "Big Book", Alcoholics Anonymous.

Twelve Steps

AA’s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.

The 12 Steps

Twelve Traditions

AA’s Twelve Traditions apply to the life of the Fellowship itself. They outline the means by which AA maintains its unity and relates itself to the world about it, the way it lives and grows.
