Stuff to Help, Buy, Share

The RECOVERY books, conferences, podcasts, gifts, etc. on this page are recommendations from those who have put together some sober time. I hope they will be useful to you as well! When you click on some of the books below, you may be taken to information about the book with options of places to buy it. The links to NON-PROFITS (e.g. - Alcoholics Anonymous) will go to their Intergroup Office so that organization will make the profit. 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! Thank you so much!

Readers may subscribe to AA Beyond Belief and AA Agnostica, both of which publish weekly articles, podcasts, interviews, conference announcements and proceedings, book reviews and a wealth of information:

Secular online AA meetings go by names such as Quad A or AAAA (Atheist & Agnostic AA), Many Paths, Freethinkers, etc. A searchable list of meetings is available on the Secular AA website:

Conferences

From Liz:

  • 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.
