The Hotline is one of our most supported committees. This committee sees to it that the phones are answered while the office is closed. Phones being answered 24/7 is an essential part of Intergroup. When someone reaches out for help by calling AA, it is often the very first contact for many alcoholics.
The chair of this committee fills the next month’s calendar with AA members who volunteer to take calls at their home, or wherever they and their cell phone happen to be. The way the Hotline works is through the use of an answering service. When someone calls Intergroup after hours, the answering service asks the caller if he/she would like to speak to an AA member. If the caller wants to talk to someone, for meeting information, a 12th Step call, or other AA related information, the answering service connects the caller to the volunteer. At no time is the caller given the volunteer’s name or phone number. Utmost care is taken to ensure the anonymity of the Hotline volunteers.
