formed in 1935 in America, an organization which is recognized as being the most well-known, oldest, and biggest, a globally deliberate team of people who, via a 12 step system, look to assist one another in getting and remaining abstinent from alcohol use. The sole prerequisite for being a member is a longing for sobriety.

Members maintain individual namelessness at the general public level, thereby accenting Alcoholics Anonymous concepts rather than individuality.
