WSO Meeting Teleconferences

7th Tradition
Your World Service Organization relies on the support of ACA groups for meeting the Fellowship’s service needs as much as meetings rely on the basket to pay their expenses. We are currently not fully self supporting in this area and ask groups and Intergroups, that are able, to make a contribution. The amount is not as important as is the spiritual act of the 7th Tradition in helping support your World Service Office. 7th Tradition Contributions can be made online or by mailing a check or money order payable to ACA WSO to 1458 E33rd St., Signal Hill, CA, 90755.


Resource Spotlight – Homepage Content and Design Contest

We are asking for fellowship input on the design and message on the home page of our website If we use one of your ideas, you will get a piece of ACA literature of your choice!

What should be on the home page – the Laundry List? Our Public Service Announcements? Should we use buttons, Images, or plain text? What colors will work best to carry the message.

Send your ideas and sample layouts to [email protected]

About Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA)

ACA is a worldwide 12 Step / 12 Tradition program of recovery dedicated to people who were raised in dysfunctional families. ACA does not seek to assign blame to parents or caretakers, but we seek to understand the reality of how family dysfunctions affected us as children and still affects our adult behavior today.

Family dysfunction can include alcoholism, abandonment, neglect, or any type of addiction or abuse. ACA is synonymous with ACoA; Adult Children Anonymous; & Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families.
