National. Online only.

The primary purpose of 12StepMe.org chat is to provide an area for those who wish to assist others in doing the 12 steps as outlined in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, for those who wish to learn how to sponsor others, and to demonstrate how God-dependence and service to others is the path to a happy, joyous, and free life. This website has no affiliation—implied or actual—to any organization, including Alcoholics Anonymous. The meetings in the chat room, however, are conducted by an AA group that is registered with the Online Intergroup of Alcoholics Anonymous.
