Is alcohol causing problems in your life?

Do you have a desire to stop drinking?

 

 

Countless police officers and retirees have found the solution in Alcoholics Anonymous!

 

To add your group to this list, or for some pointers on setting up a new group, please e-mail

Andy O.  or call (916) 560-3090 

 

 

Remember, that first meeting is a BIG step for newcomers, so let's make that step a little easier for them.  You do no one any good if you keep yourselves a secret!

 

"When anyone, anywhere reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there--and for that, I am responsible."
