Introduction to AA

On this page you will find links to people and resources that can help the suffering alcoholic make a start to a lasting personal recovery. Alcoholics helping alcoholics and where to find the help. Starting with the phone numbers above which will quickly connect you to another alcoholic who has found recovery in our fellowship.

AA is a worldwide movement with about three million members. So if you are visiting our site with an alcohol problem don’t think for one minute that you are alone and that your position is hopeless. There are millions of us who have found recovery and a happy and fulfilled life in AA. You have nothing to lose by trying the program that has worked for us and in our many meetings around Devon and elsewhere, you will have the evidence of recovery in front to you. It is not a theory. It works.

Online Resources

Below we have listed just a small selection of key AA sites around the UK, Europe and the US. At the top of the list is our recently updated and much improved Alcoholics Anonymous UK national site. In our list of links below there is one that will take you to an electronic copy of the ‘Big Book’. Have a look. Click the link and click on the words ‘Alcoholic Anonymous’ it could change your life – it changed mine. Please note that the MP3 Download site is not an official AA site and we do not imply endorsement of it, but it is run by AA members for AA members.
