Who We Are

The Rockford Area Intergroup Association (RAIA) consists of A.A. groups in North/North-Western Illinois, located within Districts 70, 71, 72 & 73.  Together we provide services for the A.A. groups in the area and for individuals or organizations seeking information about alcoholism and Alcoholics Anonymous. These services include: a monthly newsletter, a consolidated list of A.A. meetings in and around the area, a phone service for those seeking help or information, this website and an inventory of A.A. literature available for purchase.

What We Are

“A central office (or intergroup) is an A.A. service office that involves partnership among groups in a community—just as A.A. groups themselves are partnerships of individuals. A central office is established to carry out certain functions common to all the groups—functions which are best handled by a centralized office—and it is usually maintained, supervised, and supported by these groups in their general interest. It exists to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers.”

A.A. Preamble

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes and causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
