Parental alienation anonymous is a free 12 step meeting adapted from Allanon. The 12 steps are a spiritual based program and meant to be taken in order 1 step at a time. PA-A has weekly support group meetings with varying topics. All meetings are run by volunteers who are other alienated folks in the program. The meetings are run off of a format. The format creates structure, consistency and safety.

Each member can choose to participate or just listen, some folks have their cameras on and some folks choose to have their cameras off until they feel comfortable. It is suggested to attend at least 6 meetings before you decide if the program might be useful. Because there is so much pain, hurt and trauma in our community it takes time to adjust and learn about personal recovery. Sign up at PA-A.org for a weekly newsletter containing meeting times, links and other group activities, plus a great resource page.
