"Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem."
The primary purpose of the Lakes Area Alano Association (LAAA) charitable organization is to encourage, foster, promote and enhance the sobriety of recovering alcoholics, addicts, and their families by providing a safe and sober environment for those in the program. LAAA works with local treatment facilities, DWI and Drug courts doing everything possible to ensure lasting recovery for alcoholics, addicts, and their families, one day at a time. We provide the facilities, resources, and amenities, for recovering alcoholics, addicts, and their families to achieve lasting positive lifestyle changes. Our ultimate goal is to be there for those in need and offer opportunity for continued healing.
