Answer the Nassau County AA Hotline

“When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of AA always to be there. And for that, I am responsible.”

Members with 6 months of sobriety may volunteer as a Daytime Phone Rep for regular daytime shifts at the office.

Members with at least 90 days of sobriety may help their AA home group cover a week of Nightbook service.

Daytime Phone Reps are trained to cover four-hour shifts (9am-1pm or 1pm-5pm) at the office. They are also shown how to operate our point-of-sale system to handle any literature sales during their shift. Use our Contact Us page to reach our volunteer coordinator for information about available shifts.

Nightbook shifts are typically covered by local AA groups signing up to handle the 5pm-9am shifts for a full week. To sign up your home group for this service (or to get further information) use our Contact Us page to reach our Nightbook coordinator.


Since 1948, sober AA members have been responding to calls from drinkers in Nassau County seeking a way out. Originally handled by the Manhasset-Roslyn group, the responsibility for answering calls from alcoholics was handed off to the Nassau Answering Service of Alcoholics Anonymous on June 24, 1970. That answering service was the cornerstone of the Nassau Intergroup that we know today.
