Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings

A.A. is a worldwide fellowship of more than 2,000,000 alcoholic men and women who are banded together and meet to resolve their common problem and to help fellow sufferers recover from that age-old, baffling malady, alcoholism. A.A.'s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink, and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole. A.A.'s Twelve Traditions are the glue that bind us together and instrumental to the groups survival. Recovery from alcoholism takes place as a result of the alcoholic attending meetings and following the directions in our basic text Alcoholics Anonymous (Big Book) which will take the alcoholic through the AA 12 Steps of recovery and enable them to discover a Power Greater than themselves that can and will do for them what they have been powerless and unable to do for themselves and to assist them to help other alcoholics to recover.

Our Purpose

The Central Group, a large metropolitan group enjoys, 25 meetings during the week and nine on the weekend. Central Group is a spiritual entity having but one primary purpose-that of carrying its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.

The Purpose of this website is to serve the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous by acting as a resource in providing accurate and consistent information that may inspire and encourage participation in Central Group service positions and activities.

Central Group Brief History

The Jacksonville Group was the first AA group meeting in Florida to be registered with New York (presently A.A. World Services) in January 1941. In early 1947 The Jacksonville Group along with several other AA groups who were meeting at 121 East Forsythe street broke up and spread into locations throughout the city. The Jacksonville Group continued to meet at East Forsythe street and in 1948 changed its name to, "The Central Group". The Central Group relocated several times after that and then in 1953 started meeting at its present location, The San Marco Club 1423 San Marco Boulevard.
