This is the official website of Emotions Anonymous International (EAI).
EAI is a nonprofit organization that facilitates the Emotions Anonymous (EA) 12-Step Program by providing a central location for support group meeting information. EAI also offers EA-approved materials and other resources to help individuals improve their mental health and well-being. EAI's mission is to support individuals with emotional difficulties in their efforts to live more manageable lives. Many people have found their way to a more positive life experience by participating in this program. 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 are derived and used with permission from AA. Individuals seeking help through the EA program come from all walks of life and levels of mental health status. This program can be beneficial for those in recovery from addiction but is applicable to anyone interested in improving their emotional well-being.
The main office of EAI is located in St. Paul, MN, USA. The EAI Board of Trustees is made up of members from around the world. EA-approved literature can be purchased through our online store. EAI sells pamphlets, workbooks, books, and merchandise. The staff and Board of Trustees develop and approve materials with input from EA members.
EAI is solely supported by member and group contributions and sales. We need your support! Please consider making a contribution.
You may pick up your order by placing it at least 24 hours prior to your pick-up date. Please provide an approximate pick-up time to assure that it is ready and staff is available to assist you.
