Welcome to the web pages of the Atlanta Central Office of Alcoholics Anonymous. The Central Office, by A.A. tradition, exists primarily as a service organization. It is the first point of contact with A.A. for many who believe they may have a drinking problem. It's an A.A. member at our office who answers the phone when anyone in the fourteen county area calls Alcoholics Anonymous.
The Central Office is the communications center and exchange hub for over four hundred groups which conduct over eleven hundred A.A. meetings each week in the metropolitan Atlanta area. We maintain the roster of volunteers who man our phone lines, updating it as new names or corrections are received from Local Groups. We receive about a hundred contacts daily from people looking for help or information. When a person calls for help, a member of the Group nearest the caller's home is immediately contacted for follow-up. The procedure is followed for all areas serviced by the Central Office.
In the community, the Central Office arranges for A.A. speakers to give public information talks about A.A. to schools, community organizations, businesses, and professional groups. We publish updated Meeting Lists each year, giving location, day, and time of all A.A. meetings in this area as well as maintaining this web site.. The Central Office works closely with jails and penal institutions, providing free literature for their meetings. Within the A.A. community, the Central Office supplies literature, books, meeting lists, and chips to A.A. Groups as requested. We conduct monthly Intergroup meetings on the first Sunday of each month.
Our site has a brief description of the A.A. program, a calendar of upcoming events in the A.A. community, a searchable database of the area meetings, and links to other internet sites of interest. If you can't find what you need on these pages, please call our volunteer help line at 404-525-3178.
