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.
