-- Our organisation was inaugurated in September 2007 in order to expose the activities of a cult which has as its aims the control of AA in Great Britain and the promulgation of its own version of the recovery programme, one that is a corruption both of the message and the spirit of the fellowship.
It is our intention to describe the historical development of this cult, its diffusion within AA, and an indication of its current distribution throughout Great Britain. Additionally we will be examining some of the reported features by which members may identify whether one or more of these groups is operating in their area. We will further explore some of the strategies that these cult groups employ to promote their own agenda (to the detriment of AA), the means by which they recruit new members and endeavour to control their behaviour, and how they seek then to bolster further their credibility within AA by the co-option of "bleeding deacons". We will expose moreover their subversion of the AA message which underpins their abusive sponsorship styles. It should be observed at this point that individuals should be careful not to jump to conclusions purely on the basis of the evidence presented. We strongly advise each member to investigate for themselves the veracity of our claims and test our assertions against their own experience and observation.
Our aim is to raise awareness of this threat and encourage members to act accordingly (but following always the dictates of their own conscience) in order to marginalise this movement. Local members are quite naturally in the best possible position to judge what should be done in their own areas but some experience has already been gained in the fellowship on how to respond to this malign influence; these ideas are also presented on our website.
Finally we seek to restore AA to a healthily disorganised state where no faction within the fellowship may seek to impose its will upon the rest, and the rights of the individual are always upheld.
