When Alcoholics Anonymous first started, the individual groups in our area handled all the twelfth-step work themselves. As our membership grew, it became impossible for individual groups to handle all the aspects of twelfth-step work alone.
These individual groups gathered together to form a centralized point of contact for all the member groups. Thus, Central Jersey Intergroup was born.
CJl maintains a 24-hour hotline for alcoholics in need, arranges 12-step calls, publishes meeting lists, supplies literature and much more.
CJl has committees for public information, prisons, hospitals and institutions and unity. These committees are manned by volunteers and require support. Without the help of volunteering alcoholics, these committees and the much-needed services they offer would cease to exist. Volunteering at Central Jersey Intergroup provides an opportunity to give back that which was freely given to you.
The Central Jersey Intergroup meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at the Hamilton Public Library, basement level, 1 Municipal Drive (behind Police Station) off Whitehorse-Mercerville Rd. The meeting starts at 7 PM. For more information, click here.
