Minnesota District 5 A.A. - Welcome!

Welcome to A.A. District 5 in North Central Minnesota Area 35. We are located northwest of the Twin Cities metro area, north of I-94 containing cities including Becker, Big Lake, Elk River, Milaca, Princeton, and Zimmerman. If you are looking for us you're in the right place and we're glad you're here. This site will assist in answering general questions about Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as Alcoholics Anonymous's presence in the local area and to find resources providing more information on alcoholism.

  • The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
  • A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
  • Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make things right
If I surrender to His Will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
