What is Alcoholics Anonymous?

The 12 Steps of AA

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) outlines a 12-step program to help members achieve and maintain sobriety. The steps aim to motivate members toward positive change across the United States.

  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable. Members accept addiction has overtaken their ability to control it.
  2. We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. Members open up to faith-based guidance.
  3. We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. Members commit fully to the program.
  4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Members reflect deeply and honestly on their behaviors.
  5. We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Members transparently disclose their shortcomings.
  6. We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Members prepare for difficult personal growth.
  7. We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Members actively seek God’s help to improve.
  8. We made a list of all the persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. Members take accountability for the harm caused.
  9. We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others. Members repair past damage through wise action.
  10. We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. Members regularly self-reflect with rigor and humility.
  11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out. Members strengthen their spiritual connection.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs. Members apply lessons learned to help others in need.

Getting Started with AA in Maryland

Use the meeting search on to find local Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings in your area of Maryland. Both in-person and online/virtual meetings are available in most places across the state.

Attending Your First Local AA Meeting

AA meetings in Maryland can be “open” or “closed”. An open meeting welcomes anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous’ program for recovery from alcoholism. A closed meeting is limited to those who have a desire to stop drinking.

Here is a table distinguishing the two meeting types:

Meeting Type Description
Open Anyone interested in the AA program of recovery from alcoholism
Closed Only those with a desire to stop drinking

When attending your first local AA meeting, consider arriving 10-15 minutes early and introduce yourself to some members as a newcomer. Share your experiences struggling with alcohol if you feel comfortable. You may receive welcome keychain tags marking periods of sobriety such as:

  • 30 days
  • 60 days
  • 90 days
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 1 year

The keychain tags provide encouragement and a sense of accomplishment as you progress in your sobriety. Feel free to ask any questions you may have during the meeting. AA members will be welcoming and supportive.
