This is the official website of Emotions Anonymous International (EAI).

EAI is the nonprofit organization that facilitates the Emotions Anonymous (EA) 12-Step Program of recovery. EA supports individuals with emotional difficulties in their efforts to live more manageable lives. The program's foundational components include the 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, 12 Helpful Concepts, 12 Just for Todays, 12 Promises, 12 Slogans, and 12 Principles, which can be found here.

The International Service Center (ISC) is the office of EAI and is located in St. Paul, MN, USA. The EAI Board of Trustees is made up of members from across the world. EA-approved literature can be purchased here and includes pamphlets that address different emotions, workbooks, educational books, and daily affirmation readers. The staff and Board of Trustees develop and approves materials with input from EA members.

EAI is solely supported by member and group contributions and sales. We continue to need your support!

If you or someone you know is experiencing a life-threatening mental health crisis, consider dialing 911 
or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). EA International is not a hotline or equipped to handle emergencies.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone and are doing our best to shift EAI operations to accommodate the current world situation. Many face-to-face groups have switched to a remote or virtual way of meeting and many new remote and virtual meetings have begun. Some face-to-face groups are beginning to resume meeting in person or developing hybrid meetings accessible locally face-to-face as well as remotely or virtually. Please check the Remotely Accessible and Virtual Meeting Information webpage for more information on how to access those meetings.

If you have not signed up to receive emails from EAI, please click here to do so. The EAI office is open and orders are being processed. Please keep in mind, due to COVID-19 and employee availability, there are temporary delays in the delivery of orders. We ship from the office on Thursdays as quickly as we are able. We have no control over the delivery schedule of USPS. Faster shipping is available at additional cost, please contact our office to find out more.

Currently, we are not allowing anyone other than staff in the EAI office due to COVID-19. If you wish to pick up your order you must set a pick-up time and call the office when you arrive at the building. Please allow at least 24 hours advance notice so we can have your order ready.

We are all in this together and this too shall pass.
