A Brief History of Alcoholics Anonymous in Saipan
name is Wolf and I am an alcoholic.
is the history of Alcoholics Anonymous in Saipan (to the
best of my recollection).
early 1987, Nancy W. from Seattle moved with her husband
to Saipan. The meetings were held at the local food stamp
office. I joined the group in December 1987. We moved to
the Commonwealth Health Center where we used the Continuing
Education room for a couple of years. Around 1990 we moved
to the Kristo Rai Social Hall Annex. We stayed there until
July of 2002 when flood damage forced us to look for new
quarters. We moved to a government building called N-5 from
July to September, and as of October 1, 2002, we meet at
the old K.S.A.I. radio station building in Susupe, Saipan.
currently average about 12 people at each meeting. We meet
on Monday and Wednesdays at 7:00 pm, and Friday's at 6:00
pm. Our group also meets at the local prison on Sunday mornings
at 8:00 am. There is also an active NA group on the island.
