This meeting is OPEN to anyone to attend including friends, family members, and non-drinkers The program includes two distinguished speakers from the Chicagoland chosen carefully by their peers to share experience, strength and hope.
Volunteers will also be available to discuss the disease of alcoholism and service opportunities. The large literature table, sobriety countdown, and much more are not to be missed.
