God, grant us the Serenity
to accept the things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can,
and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Welcome to Debtors Anonymous
Debtors Anonymous offers hope for people whose use of unsecured debt causes problems and suffering. We come to learn that compulsive debting is a spiritual problem with a spiritual solution, we find relief by working the D.A. recovery program based on twelve-step principles. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop incurring unsecured debt. Even if members are not in debt, they are welcome in D.A. Our Fellowship is supported solely through contributions made by members; there are no dues of fees.

Debtors Anonymous is not affiliated with any financial, legal, political, or religious entities, and we avoid controversy by not discussing outside issues. By sharing our experience, strength and hope, and by carrying the message to those who still suffer, we find joy, clarity and serenity as we recover together.

In D.A. you can find a new way of living that offers recovery from compulsive debting and hope for a healthier, happier, more prosperous life.

We suggest that you keep an open mind and attend at least six meetings as soon as possible. If you do not like one meeting, attend another.

The important thing is to keep coming back.
