Our Primary Purpose
COGF's primary purpose is to assist AA groups in Central and Southeastern Ohio in carrying the Alcoholics Anonymous message to those who still suffer from alcoholism.
We are responsible to the member groups we serve, and we adhere to the practice and spirit of AA's Three Legacies of Recovery, Unity, and Service:
- Recovery: The Twelve Steps
- Unity: The Twelve Traditions
- Service: The Twelve Concepts for World Service
COGF publishes a monthly newsletter, Conscious Contact.
This website supports COGF's purpose by:
- Maintaining an up-to-date schedule of AA meetings and special events in central and southeastern Ohio (search engine help can be found here, tips and some background information are here)
- Posting information about AA and service opportunities in our area
- Providing anyone suffering from alcoholism with another vehicle for making direct contact with Alcoholics Anonymous
