Alcoholics Anonymous Open Group Meeting

Welcome to our weekly AA meetings in our Lounge. This meeting is an OPEN meeting. We meet every Wednesday afternoon from 3:30 to 4:30pm.

Here is a brief video to answer some questions on what to expect on your first AA meeting:


Open Meetings

Let us try to stay clean and sober todayOpen meetings are for anyone who is interested in AA, Al-Anon or ACOA. If a meeting is “open” it will be so designated on the published schedule. Open meetings can be attended by students, professionals, and other non-members interested in learning more about the recovery programs.
The designation of a meeting as “open” does not change the meetings primary purpose of the group.
The Primary Purpose from Tradition 5 of the individual fellowships are:
Alcoholics Anonymous : Each group has but one primary purpose – to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
Al-Anon : Al-Anon has but one primary purpose: to help families of alcoholics.
ACOA : Each group has but one primary purpose — to carry its message to the adult child who still suffers.
Generally speaking, when attending one 12 step meeting, members do not mention their membership in other 12 step groups during the meeting, to keep the meeting focused on its primary purpose.
If a meeting is not designated either open or closed on a published schedule, it should be considered closed.

Here is a video where one of our Baha’i members turned around his life to make a difference in the neighborhood right where he lived.

Here is your information for our forthcoming Baha’i Conference for Addicts of any kind
October 24 – 27 (Thursday – Sunday)

BNASAA Conference (Bahá’í Network on Aids, Sexuality, Addictions and Abuse)
Conference Organizers: Telisha El-Amin Marjorie Clark and Barbara Mayo
The stated purpose of BNASAA is to explore Bahá’í principles and concepts related to AIDS, human sexuality, addictions, abuse and other challenging personal issues. The theme of this year’s conference is: “The more difficulties one sees in the world the more perfect one becomes”. As ‘Abdu’l-Bahá has stated, we experience difficulties in our lives for the purpose of our spiritual growth. During this conference we will explore this concept through to its application in serving our communities; to look at these issues not from a deficit perspective, but rather with respect to how they are preparing us to become valiant servants of Bahá’u’lláh.
