Hotline 2023

Our Hotline is often the first place the general public acquires information about AA in Atlantic and Cape May Counties of New Jersey.

Who Answers the Calls?

The Hotline is answered by sober members of Alcoholics Anonymous. We do not have a call center; Hotline calls are automatically routed to the personal phones of volunteers 24/7 where individuals can connect to support and get help with a drinking problem.

How We Help

Our volunteers can help callers with information about AA, how to join both local and world wide AA meetings, and help for families of alcoholics (888-944-5678 Al-Anon of NJ)

Use their own experience with alcohol and recovery through the program of AA, volunteers offer suggestions to callers who want to get help with a drinking problem. We do not recommend treatment facilities and we are not trained therapists.

Crisis help by trained staff is available at these resources:

Atlantic County Hotline: 609-344-1118

Cape May County Hotline: 609-465-5999
