Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women 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 AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contribution. AA 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 to help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
Al-Anon meets every Thursday evening in New Denver at 7 p.m. During the summer, we are meeting in person at the bottom of Slocan Street, in the park to the right of the cenotaph.
Al-Anon is for those who currently live, or have lived, with the problem of alcoholism and drug addiction. Open meetings.
Based on the Twelve Steps (adapted from AA), Al-Anon is a community grounded in the loving interchange of help among members and the application of the steps and other Al-Anon resources to our daily lives. There are no dues or fees. Anonymity is an important principle of the Al-Anon program; everything that is said in the group meeting and member-to-member must be held in confidence.
Narcotics Anonymous is not now currently meeting. For information, call 250 206 2610.
NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that they work.
There are no strings attached to NA. We are not affiliated with any other organizations. We have no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. We are not connected with any political, religious, or law enforcement groups, and are under no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion, or lack of religion.
