Southwest Michigan AA (District 1) serves meetings and groups throughout Southwest Michigan (Berrien & Cass Counties).  District 1 Committee is an extension of the Western Michigan Area 34 Assembly of Alcoholics Anonymous (Area 34/District 1.)

Our primary purpose is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the Alcoholic who still suffers and assist those who are involved in service with A.A. and its committees.
