The Online Intergroup of Alcoholics Anonymous, or OIAA, is an International service organization established in accordance with the Ninth Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous A.A., specifically for the purpose of assisting online A.A. groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers. OIAA fulfills this purpose by

1) Promoting unity among online A.A. groups through its Workshops, Forums and Assemblies

2) Using the internet to carry the message of A.A., creating opportunities for volunteers to be of service, and enabling all its members and the organization itself to connect and communicate

3) Responding to the needs of online A.A through our service committees  such as online 12th Steppers, responding directly via email to people seeking help for a drinking problem support; the CPC committee, reaching out to all professionals who may have the opportunity to provide services to those who may have a drinking problem; and the Tech Steppers, who assist online A.A. groups improve their online safety and security posture.

4) Providing a central source of information about online A.A. through our website, a central hub where members can gather and get information related to online recovery, unity and service, and our online meeting directory that allows direct access to online A.A.meetings anytime, anywhere in the world.
