12th STEP CALL

If you are a counselor, please have your clients call our hotline. We’re happy to help them find a meeting in their area. If they request a “12-Step Call,” we’ll put them in touch with a recovering member of A.A. in their area who will act as an initial contact for them. Our 12th step volunteers serve to bridge the divide for newcomers by answering questions, meeting them at meetings, and sharing their experience, strength and hope in recovery from alcoholism.
