Welcome to Area 81 Alcoholics Anonymous

Area 81 of Alcoholics Anonymous covers the geographic area of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, on the east coast of Canada. It consists of 12 districts and approximately 196 in-person meetings a week in both the French and English languages.

Our Twelfth Step - carrying the message - is the basic service that the A.A. Fellowship gives; this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. Therefore, A.A. is more than a set of principles; it is a society of alcoholics in action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven't been given the truth may die.
