Five members of Alcoholics Anonymous started the first "Big Book Step Study" (men's) group in Hyannis, Massachusetts, on the Cape. Big Book Step Study is both a particular style of AA meeting as well as a philosophy about working the Twelve Steps precisely as they are laid out in the "Big Book" of Alcoholics Anonymous. Big Book Step Study meetings are typically 90 minutes in length.


The following links and their relevant pages, and the information contained within this site, are true to the original format and intent of the first group started.

There are currently over 120 BBSS meetings that take place each week in Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and Vermont,
