“Our sole purpose is to help the individual alcoholic/addict learn to live sober. All other aspects of his life – family, friends, and work – are dependent first and foremost on attaining and maintaining sobriety. Once a man has learned to live sober, improvements in his relationships, circumstances, and quality of life soon follow.”
- John O’Reilly
