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.
The S.E.P.I.A. Office Hours:   Monday thru Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
ATTENTION TO GROUPS IN THE FIVE COUNTY AREA:  Please let the office know if your group is hosting an alkathon as we get many calls during this time and have little information about them.  Please call 215-923-7900 as there are many alcoholics who would benefit from this information.
The office will be close at 3 pm on Christmas Eve Monday, December 24th and it will be closed all day on Tuesday, December 25th, 2012 and Tuesday, January 1st, 2013 so the office staff can celebrate the holidays with their families.

SEPIA is always in need of volunteers to help carry the message of recovery. You simply have to show up. Most committees do not have a length of sobriety requirement. There are several ways to get involved.
  1. Volunteer at the SEPIA office. We ask one year of continuous sobriety to answer phones at the office. If you have less than a year, there are plenty of things you can do to help. For instance, we can always use help putting our newsletter, Interviews, together toward the end of each month.
  2. Get involved with one of our 12 Step Committees (Click Here). These committees meet at the SEPIA office, 444 N. 3rd Street, 3rd Floor, Philadelphia at 7:00 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) on the following nights:
