Our staff is highly efficient, professional, and proficient in de-escalating any issues that may arise – which makes AA a “Drama-Free Forum.” Feel free to communicate with any of our existing sponsors and members how AA offers a home for all without the worries often associated with other forums. We will not allow any destructive behavior so common on other forums. All the proper channels will be exhausted and all given a chance to tell their side.

    “We really like the way AA is offering a platform like no other – it has so much to offer our great members and sponsors. It’s great to see peer-to-peer support taking place here on AA. We also encourage users to suggest improvements to the service, which provides us with invaluable customer insight.” – Aristo (AA Admin)
