 *Please note that the Third Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous states: "The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking." In keeping with the traditions, only those with a desire to stop drinking may attend meetings designated as "CLOSED". All others are warmly invited to attend "OPEN" meetings. As of the last update there were approximately 207 meetings per week, including Spanish speaking meetings which are listed on this site, in the Santa Barbara area.

 

DIRECTORY INFORMATION

 

The Santa Barbara Area Intergroup Representative (IGR) has set the following guidelines to list your meeting in this directory.

  •  That the only requirement for membership in your Group is a desire to stop drinking. And that your Group adheres to the 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous, as. it applies to Group Autonomy.  As an individual meets these requirements they are allowed to attend the meetings.

  1. As a Group you are fully self-supporting.

  2. Your group's primary purpose is to help alcoholics recover through the Twelve Steps. From page 22 of the pamphlet - "The A.A. Group": The primary purpose of any A.A. group is to carry the A.A. message to alcoholics. Our A.A. group conscience, as voiced by the General Service Conference, has recommended that "family" meetings, "double trouble" and "alcohol and pill" meetings not are listed in our A.A. directories."

  • As a group you have no outside affiliation. 

  • As a group you have no opinion on outside issues. 

  • As a group your public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion, and you maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, television and film.

  • Secretaries and Officers must register with first and last name, home address, and phone number. Your meeting agrees to relist annually, each time new officers are elected, and anytime your meeting location or times change. This insures we have accurate information for our print and online directories and when our phone volunteers give out information.

 NOTE: As stipulated by the Intergroup Representative (IGR), groups that do not meet these guidelines will not be listed and currently listed meetings found not in adherence will be removed.
