Welcome to the Walworth County Alano Club
Established in 1989, the Walworth County Alano Club (WCAC) provides a safe place for people in all phases of their recovery journey. From the newcomer searching for help for the first time to those with decades of sobriety, we believe there is something to be learned from everyone wherever they are on their journey recovering from alcohol and drug addiction.
We offer a place for meetings with multiple meetings hosted every day, seven days a week, every day of the year. We also seek to improve the lives of everyone in recovery through fellowship, events, and discussions.
Whether you’re a resident of Walworth County, vacationing in our beautiful community, trying to get through a holiday alone, or just passing through – all are welcome to join and grow in our fellowship.
Is WCAC affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous?
No. 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 primary purpose of A.A. is to carry its message of recovery to the alcoholic seeking help. In accordance with A.A.’s Sixth Tradition, it does not “endorse, finance, or lend the A.A. name to any related facility or outside enterprise…” A.A. has published guidance on its relationship to clubs which may be of benefit to review.
WCAC is a non-profit corporation formed in the tradition of many Alano Clubs throughout the world to provide A.A. and other recovery or “12-Step groups” a place to meet and engage in fellowship. WCAC is completely separate and autonomous from A.A. and is governed by its own Board of Directors and members.

Find a Meeting
Many of us believe the meeting is the cornerstone of our fellowship. Meetings allow those in recovery to “share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.” Through the power of the meeting, the newcomer learns from the experienced, and the experienced learn from the newcomer alike.
Meetings come in a variety of formats and styles. We encourage you to visit our Meetings Listing to find your next meeting and the beginning or continuation of your journey of recovery.
