This web site is provided as a resource to find Alcoholics Anonymous meetings throughout the state of Minnesota. It is maintained by the two service entities of Alcoholics Anonymous, Area 35 and Area 36, to which all AA groups registered with Alcoholics Anonymous belong to in MN.
AA is not affiliated in any way with any of the facilities in which the AA meetings are held. We list the names of facilities only to make it easier to find the AA meetings. We do not endorse or oppose any entities other than Alcoholics Anonymous.
The purpose of all AA group meetings is for AA members to “share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.” Toward this end, AA groups have both open and closed meetings. Closed Meetings are for AA members only, or for those who have a drinking problem and “have a desire to stop drinking.” Open meetings are available for anyone interested in the AA program of recovery from alcoholism. Non-alcoholics may attend open meetings as observers. At either meeting participants are requested to confine their discussion to matters pertaining to recovery from alcoholism.
It is our hope that this web site will serve as a resource for all those people seeking an AA meeting and that it can help to fulfill the primary purpose of all Alcoholics Anonymous groups, which is to “be a spiritual entity having but one primary purpose – that of carrying its message to the alcoholic who still suffers”.
