At present (November 10, 2011), we list some 19,490 A. A. meetings (3,508 Spanish-speaking) in the 58 counties of California. This page provides links to the index for each county, such as would be awkward to display on every page.
As with all we do in A. A., we rely on each other for meeting information. At present, not only are untold meetings not listed at all, but the information available on many is doubtful, out-dated or incomplete. Where something is especially important to clear up, we have added a little pop-up note [Help!], to alert our visitors and ask for your assistance.
Please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) of any corrections, additions, subtractions and suggestions you may have – so that, together, we can let those who need us know where to find us.
This online listing of A. A. meetings in California is put together from many sources, including local and central office meeting directories, the listings of local clubs and community sources, and direct information from the groups and members involved.
It is offered as a free service to those who need it, and is unaffiliated with any official body in the area–or any organization at all, for that matter.
— Unless specified as “Closed”, all meetings are open to anyone with an interest in recovery from alcoholism.
— “Closed” meetings are only for those who themselves have “a desire to stop drinking.”
— Unless indicated otherwise, meetings are one hour in length.
— You may generally assume that there is no smoking in the meetings.
— The © symbol next to an address indicates that it is wheelchair-accessible.
— To make finding the meetings easier, and out of respect for our hosts, we try to fully identify the locations in which we meet.
— Where we do have to shorten names, we apologize. E.g., while many Methodists are in fact “United Methodists”,
the extra word often doesn't fit well in the lines.
— We have included Maps for each meeting, with pop-up Thomas Guide coordinates, where available.
— The meeting format, if not clear from the group name, is shown separately. If not specified, assume open discussion/participation.
— If only the format is known, the space for a group name is left blank.
— If there really is no A. A. group, however, it is not really an A. A. meeting at all. Please advise!
— Genuine A. A. meetings, and the groups that hold them, should never be affiliated in any way with any locations
in which they are held, whether they be hospitals, schools, clubs, treatment or community centers, etc.
