Warriors Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking/drug problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere.
There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to Warriors (active military, veteran or first responder) who want to do something about their drinking/drug problem. (Singleness of Purpose and Problems Other Than Alcohol) Some professionals refer to alcoholism and drug addiction as “substance abuse” or “chemical dependency.”
Non-alcoholics are, therefore, sometimes introduced to W.A. and encouraged to attend W.A. meetings. Non-alcoholics may attend open W.A. meetings as observers, but only those with a drinking/drug problem may attend closed W.A. meetings.
