Resources for New and Existing Groups
To start a new DA meeting (or re-energize an existing meeting) we suggest:
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: In D.A., our purpose is threefold: to stop incurring unsecured debt, to share our experience with the new comer, and to reach out to other debtors.
RESPONSIBILITY PLEDGE: “I pledge to extend my hand and offer the hope of recovery to anyone who reaches out to Debtors Anonymous.”
A WORD TO NEWCOMERS: “If you are having problems with money and debt and think you may be a compulsive debtor, you have come to the right place and we can help you. It is suggested that at first you attend at least six meetings over a period of two weeks to have time to identify with the speakers and absorb the D.A. concepts. If you then think D.A. is for you, you can arrange to have your first pressure relief meeting.”
