Statement of Purpose

Sonoma County Teleservice is a group of alcoholics who answer the local AA Hotline 24 hours a day‚ seven days a week. Call to the Hotline range from requests for meeting information‚ general information about AA‚ people who want to stop drinking or are afraid they will drink. Hotline volunteers are given training and guidelines to assist them in handling calls.

Calls beyond information about AA meetings‚ which may involve personal discussions about the benefits of continued sobriety within the AA program‚ are referred to 12th Step volunteers.
