Adult Children of Alcoholics is a Twelve Step program. We meet to share the experience we had as children growing up in an alcoholic or dysfunctional home. That experience infected us then and affects us today. By practicing the Twelve Steps and by attending meetings regularly, we find freedom from the effects of alcoholism or other family dysfunction. As A.C.A members, we identify with The Laundry List traits. We learn how to live in The Solution of reparenting ourselves, one day at a time.
As the A.C.A meetings serve the individual member to have a place to be heard and to feel safe. The Intergroup serves the meetings so that the meetings can have a voice to be heard on the World Service level.
The mission of the Northeast Wisconsin (N.E.W) Intergroup
To offer support to existing A.C.A meetings and the fellowship of A.C.A by acting as a voice for our local area on a World service level, performing outreach and carrying the message to those who still suffer. We do this with a commitment to service work from love.
