The IDAA Help Line is an internet based listing on the IDAA web site. Email and phone numbers of member volunteers are listed under local areas where the member has knowledge of appropriate meetings for colleagues seeking help in AA or those traveling through the area who wish to attend a meeting.

Anonymity is of concern to all. Your email address will be encrypted before being placed on the listing. The encrypted email address will forward the colleagues message directly to your email.

Your identity could be traced through your phone number. If you have any concerns about listing your phone number, it can be omitted from your listing. Conversely, if you do not have email access, but wish to participate in the Help Line, your phone number listing is most welcome.


To volunteer for the IDAA Help Line you should have at least three years of sobriety and have attended more than one IDAA annual meeting and agree to the following:

  1. Be a member of IDAA and update Central Office with membership information in a timely manner.
  2. Provide help for colleagues in trouble or those who want to attend an AA meeting in the area.
  3. Disclose affiliations with treatment centers or monitoring agencies and not compromise anonymity of colleagues.
  4. Have an email address and/or phone number, check email frequently.
  5. Help build and maintain this network in your area.

If you register as a volunteer for this Help Line, providing your information and email address gives implied permission for the above.

If you are accepted for listing on the Help Line, only your first name, last initial, city, state, encrypted email address and designated phone number(s) will appear on the open web site. Anonymity cannot be guaranteed.

Please do *not* use abbreviations for any answers and use correct capitalization. Your first name should be as you wish it to appear in the listing; your last name will automatically be shortened to just the first letter.
