The meetings are where we find the safety to share our fears, experience, strength and hope.
We share the similarities between our own characteristics and those expressed in The Problem and learn we are not alone.
Through ACA, we learn that there are others like us, and there is hope. There is recovery. There is a light at the end of the tunnel; our fears can be overcome.
In accordance with our Fourth Tradition, ACA groups are autonomous except in matters that affect other ACA groups or ACA as a whole.
ACA is a spiritual program. The individuals' right to choose a Higher Power of their own understanding is without limitation.
The WSO expects all ACA meetings to follow the ACA Twelve Steps
and/or Traditions to the best of their ability. We reserve the right to not list and/or remove (delist) meetings that do not follow these Steps or Traditions. See Meeting Compliance Policy for further information.
ACA World Services does not list meetings that profess any specific political, religious, or controversial affiliation.
