AAWOL – Alcoholics Anonymous Way of Life
The Alcoholics Anonymous Way of Life Program (AAWOL) started in 1969 when members of the Alcoholics Anonymous community were invited to participate in groups at the Gavin House. AAWOL has evolved to now offer a structured 21 week program of reading and group discussion using the AA book Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions as the focus. From the first small group meeting at Gavin House, the Gavin Foundation AAWOL program has been shared throughout Massachusetts and the United States. Our AAWOL program has even gone abroad; programs have been established in England (1998), Poland (1999), Ireland (2000) and China (2005).
The Gavin Foundation AAWOL program offers seven men’s and three women’s groups every Tuesday night at the Tynan School in South Boston. If you are interested in joining or facilitating please call the Gavin House at 1-617-268-5517.
In October of 2015 additional AAWOL groups began meeting every Thursday night at the Kent School, 50 Bunker Hill Street, Charlestown. If you are interested in joining or facilitating please call the Charlestown Recovery House at 1-617-242-0088.
