Who we are

Children of Chaos is a Alcoholics Anonymous free-thinking group that is open to each individual’s beliefs.

This diverse group neither endorses nor opposes any religious, agnostic or atheist beliefs, while maintaining the integrity of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

The only entry fee to Alcoholics Anonymous is simply the desire to stop drinking and you are a member if you say you are.

What do you believe

  • Have you ever questioned the existence of a “traditional” God?
  • Maybe you do believe in one?
  • Or do you believe that there is Something out there – some Force, some Source – spiritual or otherwise, that can guide you to sobriety?
  • Or, perhaps you don’t believe in anything spiritually, but you do have one desire, the desire to stay sober?

Children of Chaos is here for you and meets at noon Monday through Friday
