Welcome to AA in South Devon

In these pages you’ll find information about Alcoholics Anonymous in South Devon, including details of all our meetings – there’s at least two every day!

If you’re new to AA or unsure if it’s right for you, click here for more information.

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.

As we are sure you're aware, the current Coronavirus outbreak has forced all Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in South Devon to close until further notice.

For many of us, particularly newcomers, meetings are a real life line. We are lucky to live in an age where isolation doesn't have to mean loneliness.
