Adult Children of Alcoholics is an anonymous Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition program of women and men who grew up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional homes. We meet with each other in a mutually respectful, safe environment and acknowledge our common experiences. We discover how childhood affected us in the past and influences us in the present.

Service work is an integral part of a persons recovery process, and is both self gratifying and helpful to others. “Giving back” can range from making coffee before the meetings, cleaning up afterward, arranging chairs, serving on committees, hosting meetings, carrying the hotline phone, mentoring and sponsoring other addicts and myriad other ways.
