If you are having problems with money and debt and think you may be a compulsive debtor, you have come to the right place. Debtors Anonymous can help you.
We offer face-to-face, telephone, and internet meetings throughout the Bay Area.
We suggest attending at least six meetings to have an opportunity to identify with the speakers and become familiar with DA, before deciding whether or not this program is for you. If you identify with some or all aspects of compulsive debting, we hope you will join us on the path of recovery
and find the peace, joy, and love that we have found in
A Message from Intergroup
In the spirit of clarity and staying connected to our own program and to each other,
and because individual meetings have gone on-line or to conference call, it seems important to remember this:
Our DA recovery hasn't gone anywhere.
The only thing that has really changed is the physical aspect of not being able to go to meetings in person.
Debtors Anonymous is still alive and well.
We have the 12 Steps to continue to recover.
We can practice the 11th step, pray and meditate daily; practice surrendering our life, our money, our work over to the care
of a Higher Power as we understand our higher power.
The disease leads us to vagueness and unmanageability and we have our 2nd and 3rd steps to support us in this.
And let us not forget the Tools to continue to guide our recovery: #7 Telephone and Internet, #8 DA & AA Literature,
#2 Record Maintenance and #9 maintaining the awareness of the danger of compulsive debt.
During this stressful time the DA 3rd step prayer can be a source of great comfort, found on page 19 of the 12x12x12-
"Higher Power, I stand before you ready to be transformed. I place myself in your hands.
Guide me on my recovery path. Remove my compulsive debting, my self centered fear, and my own self-will.
May I shine to others as a beacon of your power. May I choose to remain on your path always."
