Reading-Berks Intergroup is comprised of member AA groups located within Berks County, Pa.  We are one of 11 Intergroups that reside in the Area 59 Eastern Pennsylvania General Service Area.

Reading-Berks Intergroup is not affiliated with any outside organization or institution.
We exist to serve the Alcoholics Anonymous groups & members in the Berks County, PA  area.

The AA Preamble
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA 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 achieve sobriety.
