Welcome To The WSAC!
We are a non-profit corporation designed for our members to meet and share their experience, strength and hope with each other because of our common concern for people trying to achieve and maintain a life free from the use of alcohol or drugs.
From it's inception in 1956 until today (over 50 years) the WSAC has served the AA community in the western suburbs of Chicago. The club is a place to hold meetings and social functions for the AA recovering community. There are presently over 30 meetings at the Club per week including Al-Anon and Spanish speaking meetings. The 2 open speaker meetings per week provide a welcome place for recovering people and their families and friends to meet.
The Club's singleness of purpose is to provide a safe, clean, and supportive environment in which new AA members can work at changing their lives. By its own traditions, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), cannot finance or lend its name to any outside organization, so “club houses” for recovering alcoholics sprang up in the 1930s soon after AA’s founding. Initially called “24-Hour Clubs,” founded and operated apart from AA by recovering alcoholics, these institutions met the need among recovering people and their families for companionship and sober recreation, and soon came to be called “AA's second miracle.” Alano Clubs are the most common among the thousands of recovery clubs around the world that provide “safe haven” to travelers who are recovered alcoholics and addicts as well as a social hub for the local recovery community.
Club membership is available to any one with at least 30 days of sobriety. Dues are $5 per month or $50 for a full year.
