Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional, but our service centers may employ special workers.

  Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever non-professional. We define professionalism as the occupation of counseling alcoholics for fees or hire. But we may employ alcoholics where they are going to perform those services for which we might otherwise have to engage nonalcoholic. Such special services may be well recompensed. But our usual A.A. Twelfth Step work is never to be paid for.




We need volunteers to help with our monthly mailing - takes less than one hour. The next mailing will take place at Central Service, 1005 Waterman Ave, E. Providence on Wed., August 26th at 9AM.
