The purpose of this website is:

  • To serve the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous located in District 15 Region of
    Southeast Ohio.
  • To serve as a resource for A.A. members, those seeking help from A.A., professionals working with alcoholics, the media, and the public at large.
  • To provide accurate and consistent information about activities within the District 15 Region of Alcoholics Anonymous.
  • To provide information about services coordinated by District 15.
  • To encourage participation of A.A. members, groups and committees in A.A. services and activities.

The AA Service Manual defines a District as a geographical unit containing the right number of Groups. Right in terms of the committee members ability to keep in frequent touch with them, to learn their problems and to find ways to contribute to their growth and well-being. It is our sincere hope that you find the information here useful. Please consider supporting District 15 by participating in district activities. Also consider sending representation from your group to District 15 meetings held the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at First Presbyterian Church, Fourth and Wooster Streets, Marietta.

What is AA?

The AA Preamble best describes what AA is and what it is not. You will likely hear the preamble at the beginning of many meetings.

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 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 help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
