For more information on the ACA literature policy, refer to the trifold entitled, "The ACA Literature Policy." No dues or fees are required for membership; we are, however, fully self-supporting through our own contributions.We give our 7th Tradition donations at the meetings as we can afford to, in acknowledgment of the benefits our program gives us.
We have learned by experience that those ACA members who make the greatest gains in the shortest amount of time are those who use the "tools of recovery." We have also found that all of us recover at our own paces, and in our own time.
In the meetings we come to understand how our childhood experiences shape our attitudes, behavior, and choices today.
We hear others talk about their experiences, and we recognize ourselves. We sense that within ourselves are people who are not who we were taught to be.
ACA is an independent Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition program.
We are not affiliated with any other Twelve Step organization.
We do suggest that any outside literature brought into the meetings be in keeping with the ACA Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.
