Indianapolis Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) For Atheists and Agnostics

"Each group is as unique as a thumbprint, and approaches to carrying the message of sobriety vary not just from group to group but from region to region. Acting autonomously, each group charts its own course."
From "The A.A. Group: Where It All Begins"

"…the A.A. program of recovery is based on certain spiritual values. Individual members are free to interpret these values as they think best, or not to think about them at all."
From "Members of the Clergy Ask About Alcoholics Anonymous"

"A.A. is not a religious organization. All members are free to decide on their own personal ideas about the meaning of life."
From "A Brief Guide to Alcoholics Anonymous"

"Our membership ought to include all who suffer from alcoholism. Hence, we may refuse none who wish to recover. Nor ought A.A. membership ever depend upon money or conformity. Any two or three alcoholics gathered together for sobriety may call themselves an A.A. group, provided that, as a group, they have no other affiliation."
From Tradition Three, the long form.
