What is A.A.?
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 any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Northeast Central Services Inc. operates a central office in Tulsa to provide services for Alcoholics Anonymous members and groups in Northeast Oklahoma. It was created to provide a variety of services which are not practical for an individual A.A. group to provide. It provides assistance to alcoholics and others interested in or affected by the disease of alcoholism, receives inquiries regarding Alcoholics Anonymous, and provides a source of information to the public about alcoholism and Alcoholics Anonymous.
What is Central Service?
The Central Service Office provides services for A.A. groups and members in Northeast Oklahoma, and is supported by contributions from those groups and members. Successful continuance of our services can be assured only by the financial cooperation of the members and groups through their contributions. Central Service is NOT a "headquarters". It does not attempt to, nor can it, influence or direct any A.A. Group. Central Service is a committee of A.A. members delegated by the member groups to provide services. All A.A. literature and books published by World Services, New York, are available for sale at your Central Service Office.
