AA Meetings in Portland

There are about 900 meetings per week in the Portland metro area, so there are plenty to choose from to find what works for you:

  • Speaker meetings – a member tells what happened and how they stay sober;
  • Topic discussions;
  • Book studies based on Alcoholics Anonymous or the Twelve Steps & Twelve Traditions;
  • Studying the Twelve Steps of A.A..  

All are welcome at “open” meetings; “closed” meetings are limited to those who want to quit drinking, and stay quit. Although we often meet in churches, AA is not affiliated with any religious organization or treatment center; some groups meet in community centers, Alano Clubs, hospitals, or even outdoors.

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

What is AA?

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.

AA 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

The AA Preamble

12 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


12 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.
