Need Info?

If you have a drinking problem and want to contact someone in Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.), this website offers a number of ways to do this. Please check the menu items under Contact Us to reach one of our members in Area 78 or to find a local phone number close to you. You can, of course, just look up and go to a meeting close to you by using our Find a Meeting feature. We will be glad to see you.


This website also provides information pertinent to members of AA in Area 78 and the public/media at large who are simply looking for details regarding the service structure in Area 78 of Alcoholics Anonymous.

AA Preamble

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS© is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.


The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.


A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.


Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Temporary Meeting Changes

Groups that wish to have their Area 78 meeting listing temporarily marked as Cancelled or Online may submit an online change request to the Area Web Administrators (using the Update Group Meeting Info feature on the top left of this page).

On the Update Group Meeting Info page you will:

  1. Select the city where your group meets
  2. Click the SELECT button to the left of your Groups name
  3. When the Change Meeting Request page opens scroll down to where you see the name of your group
  4. To the far right is a box beneath "Meeting Status" with the options - Normal - Online - Cancel. Please check the appropriate option for the status you want for your meeting: Return to Normal, go Online, or Temporarily Cancel
  5. Remember to Fill in the Required Contact Information at the bottom before you click the Submit button

When applied by our web administrator, your changes will reflect on our Find A Meeting page listings. They will also filter through to the Meeting Guide App on your phone, usually within 24 hours.

To restore your group meeting to its' normal status, simply reverse the process by submitting another online change request after selecting the Normal Meeting Status button. Like before, fill in the Contact Info and submit the request. The canceled or online meeting type checkboxes will be unmarked when the changes are applied by the Area 78 Web Admin, returning your group listing to show as a standard face to face meeting.

If you have questions on this, you may direct your inquiries to the E-Services Chair at

This web site observes all AA's practices and principles. Since 'anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions', we practice anonymity at all times.


A web site is a public medium which has the potential for reaching the broadest possible audience and therefore requires the same safeguards that we use at the level of press, radio and film.
