D.A. Literature

D.A. literature is integral to our recovery. You’ll come across uplifting stories from many D.A. members who achieved solvency and found serenity in their lives. Our inspiring literature also teaches us how to work the Twelve Steps, define our own higher power, choose a sponsor, develop a spending plan, and much more. Reading our books and pamphlets between meetings—and especially when we cannot attend meetings—keeps us focused on recovery and deepens our growth.

D.A. New York Intergroup currently distributes literature only at special events, such as Share-A-Day. However, individuals and groups can order D.A. literature through the DA World Service Office.
