What is AA?

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.

What is District 9?

District 9 is one of eighteen geographical divisions within HMB Area 48.  As a service entity, District 9 assists more than 40 Alcoholics Anonymous groups around Southern Oneida and Southern Herkimer Counties in carrying the message of recovery for the once hopeless alcoholic.

If you are looking for help to stop drinking, trying to find a way to expand your journey through Alcoholics Anonymous, or just curious about what District 9 offers please use the links in the menu of this website to find various information and join us at our next District 9 Group Conscience Meeting, generally held the last Wednesday of every month.

And please never hesitate to reach out for help.  Whether it be a desire to speak with a recovering alcoholic, a ride to a meeting or simply a need for more information, our hotline is open 24/7.
