About Oregon Area 58

Oregon Area 58 serves 37 districts. There are over 1,100 A.A. meetings and more than 18,000 members in the state of Oregon, Oregon Area 58 provides assistance to the groups in our common effort to carry the A.A. message.

The primary purpose of A.A. is to carry our message of recovery to the alcoholic seeking help. Together, we can do what none of us could accomplish alone; through our mutual experience we can provide ongoing support for each other.

“Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people 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 A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

A.A. 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.”
