Hi I am anand, an Adult Child.
I am grateful to be of service to ACA Intergroup of Southern Nevada and want to welcome you to our brand new website. This Intergroup covers all of the greater Southern Nevada area. This includes Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Paradise, Sunrise Manor, Spring Valley, Enterprise, Pahrump, Searchlight, Laughlin, Boulder City and beyond.
Adult Children of Alcoholics, Addicts, or Dysfunctional Families is a 12-Step, 12-Tradition program of women and men who grew up in alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional homes. We meet with each other in a mutually respectful, safe environment and acknowledge our common experiences. We discover how childhood affected us in the past and influences us in the present. We take positive action. By practicing the 12 Steps, focusing on the solution, and accepting a loving Higher Power of our understanding, we find freedom from the past and a way to improve our lives today.
The website domain is BattleBornACA, because the state motto for Nevada is “Battle Born.” Nevada is called the “Battle Born State” because it became a state in 1864, during the Civil War. How appropriate is it to call our website Battle Born, when many Adult Children understand what it means to have brother against brother at war,and also to know what is like to go through the fire and rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
While ACA as a 12 step program is based on anonymity, we do have some social media (Meetup and a private Facebook group) available to help us be more connected within our community. Please use these options judicially and be respectful of everyone’s privacy.
In addition, the ACA Intergroup of Southern Nevada is also looking to expand opportunities for service through various committees. Please take a look at what has been outlined to date and see if anything interests you. Service is always welcomed.
Thank you for visiting.
