The Southeastern Pennsylvania Intergroup Association of Alcoholics Anonymous welcomes you to its official web site. SEPIA covers the Southeastern Pennsylvania area, including the city of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery. Our primary purpose is to carry the message of recovery to the alcoholic who still suffers. If you want to drink, that's your business; if you want to stop, it's ours.
We can help! Please call 215-923-7900.
