A number of 12-step groups have designed their own 12 traditions to suit their circumstance and recovery program.

We can help you find an AA group near you, so pick up the phone and call us today on 0800 246 1509.


The 12 traditions are:

  • The group's well-being is our top priority as it is where our individual success is dependent.
  • For the sake of our group there is one unique power - a caring God as He may manifest Himself in our group morality.
  • Our leaders are our servants, we are governed by our traditions and not by them.
  • The will to give up drinking is the only condition for AA memberships.
  • Each group should be independent apart from things which can involve other groups or AA.
  • There is only one purpose per group, and that is the help those are still under the clutches of alcohol.
  • AA discourages lending finances or approving other outside facilities to benefit from the organization's structure to avoid conflict of interest that could distract the group from pursuing the overall group's common purpose.
  • External financial help has to be refused because every AA group should completely rely on itself.
  • We should maintain our "non professionalism", but the service centres we offer can employ specialist workers.
  • There is no structural hierarchy in AA but committees can be built to service their members in need.
  • We should not share or have outside opinion on the problems of the outside world; we do not want the AA name being dragged into disrepute.
  • We maintain our anonymity at all media levels and we do not promote any issues or advocacy except that we care for the alcoholics.
  • Privacy is the spiritual pillar of all our values, remarking that values are placed before personalities.
