A.A. Hotline

Our Hotline is often the first place the general public acquires information about A.A.

We can help callers specifically within these areas of Southern New Jersey:

  • Atlantic County
  • Cape May County
  • parts of Ocean County

-On average, our volunteers answer 100 calls a month.

-We offer help and information about the A.A. program of recovery.

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

Using their own experience with alcohol and recovery through the program of A.A., 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.

Additionally we can guide families and friends of the alcoholic, who struggle with their role in a drinking problem.
