What we're about
Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA) is a Twelve-Step, Twelve -Tradition program of men and women who grew up in alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional homes. Our membership also includes adults from homes where alcohol or drugs were not present; however, abuse, neglect or unhealthy behavior was.
The ACA program was founded on the belief that family dysfunction is a disease that affected us as children and affects us as adults.
We meet to share our experience and recovery in an atmosphere of mutual respect. We discover how alcoholism and other family dysfunction affected us in the past and how it influences us in the present. We begin to see the unhealthy elements of our childhood.
By practicing the Twelve Steps, focusing on the ACA Solution, and accepting a loving Higher Power of our own understanding, we find freedom.
The meeting is held every Tuesday evening at Pathways For Change, The Family Center from 5:30 to 7:00. The Family Center is located at 2050 W. Blount Street, Pensacola, FL, 32501.
