If you’re looking for information about Alcoholics Anonymous in our part of the world, then you’ve come to the right place. We have meeting information for the Carbondale-Marion area, as well as many smaller communities around us. We will also be adding meetings from adjacent districts which do not have websites yet.

Here’s a link to Southern Illinois Area 21 which lists websites for all the districts in the southern half of our state.

We’ve also listed many of the related events and even A.A.-related websites for your convenience. If you’re new to A.A., or just passing through, our sincere desire is to extend the hand of A.A. friendship to you. And, above all, we hope that you will find the same wonderful experience, strength and hope that we’ve enjoyed in the Alcoholics Anonymous as we help each other stay sober—one day at a time!

What is A.A.?

“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 stober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.”
