Alcoholics-Info.com is an educational resource about alcoholism that also features alcoholic-related topics that include related health problems, the AA mission statement, statistics, treatment and typical personality traits of an alcoholic.

Alcoholics Anonymous is an environment in which men and women can share their experiences and gain insights and support from those with a similar problem. There are no education or age requirements, and membership is open to anyone who wants to seek help. AA.org also provides literature, a resource called the Big Book that contains the stories of AA’s co-founders who have recovered and information about the 12 Step Program.
