Lincoln Park Alano Club

A 12-Step Club



Please consider becoming a dues paying member: LPAC membership is now $35 per year for a sole person. See the Membership page for more information.

Welcome to the LPAC Website

We are located at 2100 N. Sheffield Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614: two blocks north of Armitage Avenue, in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. The entrance to the club is on the first floor corner. The door is often locked between meetings, but members and guests are welcome 15-20 minutes before any scheduled meeting. We ask that you not remain in the club after meetings—members will often congregate before and after meetings at the Starbucks or Le Pain Quotidien, both located at the corner of Armitage and Sheffield (two blocks south). Anyone with the desire to recover from their addiction is welcome at LPAC, however, some of our meetings are open to the public while some are closed—available only to persons who identify with a certain fellowship. Please see the Meetings link for a brief description and schedule of all daily meeting times. We are open 365 days a year, though at times with an abbreviated schedule, or with additional special meeting times—namely during major holidays. If you are able, we ask that you contribute $2.00 to the basket when it’s passed during meetings; but if you can’t, please keep coming back! If you’re new, or early in your recovery/sobriety, please introduce yourself, and you will be provided with a packet containing a citywide meeting schedule and member contact numbers. Annual LPAC memberships are available for $35, please ask for a board member to help facilitate membership or general donations (we take donations in any amount) or pay membership dues online here. Your membership helps keep the doors open for the many hundreds of people who rely on LPAC for their recovery. Also, we have 12-step related literature, coffee, water, and soda for sale at all meetings. Helpful Links Make a donation Join our mailing list OR simply text JOINLPAC to 444999 “>
