Learn about AA

There is no "test" that determines whether or not a person is an alcoholic.   There are many symptoms that may indicate alcoholism.

Our widespread experience is that (usually through a combination of circumstances) the drinker realizes that they can no longer control their
drinking and wants to find out how to do something about it. At this point,
many decide to seek help.

If you are feeling this way, here are three ways to contact AA:

1. Call the local AA Phone Number at
(610) 882-0558

This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will be placed in contact with a recovering alcoholic who will be happy to listen to you, answer your questions and share their experience, strength and hope with you on how AA is helping them to stay away from the first drink.

2. Go to a Meeting.

To find a meeting near you click Find a Meeting. The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no fees to pay, no "pledges" to take, no papers to sign. If you'd like, you can just sit and listen. What you will find in AA meetings are other people with drinking problems
who have found a way to stay sober, one day at a time.

3. Send us e-mail

Click on Contact Us to send us an e-mail message. Someone will definitely respond to your e-mail, though response times will vary. For best results call
the number listed above.

Please note: If you are experiencing a severe physical or psychological condition that requires medical attention, please contact a physician or
medical institution immediately, or call 9-1-1.
