DISCLAIMER: This is the official ACA Fellowship Text that is Adult Children of Alcoholics World Service Organization (ACA WSO) Conference approved literature. Adult Children of Alcoholics/Dysfunctional Families (ACA) is an independent 12-step and 12-tradition anonymous program. ACA's tenth tradition states that ACA has no opinion on outside issues; hence the ACA name ought never be drawn into public controversy. ACA's sixth tradition states that ACA ought never endorse, finance, or lend the ACA name to any related facility or outside enterprise (or books/authors) lest problems of money, property, and prestige divert us from our primary purpose. Thus any suggestions of other authors or books (e.g., "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought") made on this Web site are solely those of the online retailer. ACA World Service Organization expressly disclaims any association with any authors or books or with any online retailer and their affiliates.
Book description: The ACA Fellowship Text is owned, copyrighted, and published by ACA WSO. ACA WSO acts as the central agency of the program, gathering and disseminating meeting information, creating and distributing literature, and providing information to the general public. The ACA Fellowship Text (commonly referred to as the Big Red Book or BRB) is a meeting book, steps book, traditions book, workbook, and group guide. The ACA Fellowship Text was anonymously written by ACA members and provides guidance on working the 12 -step ACA program, leading to recovery from the effects of growing up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional family. ACA WSO has adapted AA's steps (with permission from AA) to address the effects of childhood trauma and neglect and offer hope to ACAs worldwide.
