Mission Statement:
Internet and Technology Addicts Anonymous is a fellowship of people who support each other in recovering from compulsive internet and technology use. I.T.A.A. is not affiliated with any political agenda, religion, or outside interests. Our single purpose is to abstain from compulsive internet and technology use and to help others find freedom from this addiction. We have no membership requirements beyond the desire to stop compulsive internet and technology use.
Our groups share our collective experience and the principles that helped us. Each of us is free to try out or disregard the suggestions of the program and other members.

Ours is a fellowship of recovering couples. We suffer from many addictions and dysfunctions, and we share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problems and help other recovering couples restore their relationships. The only requirement for membership is the desire to remain committed to each other and to develop new
intimacy.


There are no dues or fees for membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. We are not allied with any organization. We do not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorse nor oppose any causes.
Although there is no organizational affiliation between Alcoholics Anonymous and our fellowship, we are based on the principles of AA. Our primary purpose is to stay committed in loving and intimate relationships and to help other couples achieve freedom from dysfunctional
relationships.

Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using marijuana. There are no dues or fees for membership. We are self-supporting through our own contributions. MA is not affiliated with any religious or secular institution or organization and has no opinion on any outside controversies or causes.

We can do this by practicing our suggested Twelve Steps of recovery and by being guided as a group by our Twelve Traditions.

Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We … meet regularly to help each other stay clean. … We are not interested in what or how much you used … but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help.

Membership is open to all drug addicts, regardless of the particular drug or combination of drugs used. When adapting AA’s First Step, the word “addiction” was substituted for “alcohol,” thus removing drug-specific language and reflecting the “disease concept” of addiction.

There are no social, religious, economic, racial, ethnic, national, gender, or class-status membership restrictions. There are no dues or fees for membership; while most members regularly contribute small sums to help cover the expenses of meetings, such contributions are not mandatory.

Our primary purpose is to stop gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.

Food Adicts in Recovery is an international fellowship of men and women who have experienced difficulties in life as a result of the way we used to eat. We joined FA because we were obsessed with food. We find that we need this program of recovery and the fellowship of others who share our problem in order to stop abusing food and to begin living fulfilling lives. Through shared experience and mutual support, we help each other to recover from the disease of food addiction.

Our program of recovery is based on the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. We make use of AA principles to gain freedom from addictive eating. There are no dues, fees, or weigh-ins at FA meetings. Membership is open to anyone who wants help with food.

ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) is an anonymous Twelve step – Twelve tradition program of adult women and men who came of age in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional home. The ACA program was founded on the belief that family dysfunction is a disease that effected us as children and affects us as adults. Our membership also includes adults from homes where alcohol or drugs were not present; however, abuse, neglect or unhealthy behavior was.

We meet with each other in a mutually respectful, safe environment to acknowledge our common experiences. We discover how our childhoods affected us in the past and continue to influence us in the present. We take positive action to heal by practicing the Twelve Steps as a spiritual solution. By striving to develop a relationship with a loving Higher Power of our own understanding, we find freedom from the past and a way to improve our lives today.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover from the effects of growing up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional family.

ACA is an independent Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition program. We are not affiliated with any other Twelve Step organization. We do, however, cooperate with other Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition programs. We are not allied with any sect, denomination, organization, institution, political, or law enforcement groups. We do not engage in any controversy, and we neither endorse nor oppose any causes.

The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend.
