Welcome! New to AA?
Intro to Alcoholics Anonymous – Overview of the AA program. There are over 900 AA group meetings and more than 18,000 members in the state of Oregon; Area 58 provides assistance to the groups in our common effort to carry the AA message.

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 contributions.
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.

$7.40 on 7/4 Challenge
Donations to GSO have historically fallen short of actual operating costs; in 2017, GSO spent $10,222,650 to support our membership of 1,381,954 – that’s $7.40 for each of us.
This challenge is for each member to contribute $7.40 by 7/4, if possible, to cover GSO’s expenses. Download the flyer for your groups:
