Stuff to Help, Buy, Share

The RECOVERY books, conferences, podcasts, gifts, etc. on this page are a compilation of the most helpful to those who have put together some sober time. I hope they will be useful to you as well! PLEASE feel free to send me any of your favorite RECOVERY resources to add so we can continue to build a great list to support people around the WORLD! I will keep everything here, until/if something becomes outdated.

  • There are “specialized” groups within AA, as they are described in the pamphlet, The AA Group. They are also described as “special purpose” groups. These include doctors, women, atheists, etc. Here is a list of the very first annual or biennial conferences held by a number of these groups:

    IDAA – International Doctors in AA (1949)
    ICYPAA – International Conference of Young People in AA (1958)
    IWC – International Women’s Conference (1965)
    ILAA – International Lawyers in AA (1975)
    GAL-AA – Gays and Lesbians in AA (1976)
    NAI-AA – Native American Indian AA (1991)
    ICSAA – International Conference of Secular AA (2014)

     

    The only thing that is asked of these groups is that “they open the door to all alcoholics who seek help, regardless of profession, gender or other distinction”. (AA Group, p. 16) In my own experience, these groups do indeed do that, as I have attended several of these special purpose group meetings. ~Roger C.
