Welcome to our online information service for Healthcare Professionals.

AA for Staff in Healthcare

As a professional coming into contact with alcoholism you will be well aware of its harmful effects on the individual concerned and those around them, particularly the families.

AA Health Liaison works with hospital and treatment centre staff, perhaps visiting someone whom a member of staff has identified as having an alcohol problem and where the individual has expressed a willingness to be visited. Many hospitals welcome AA meetings on their premises, where patients can be introduced to a meeting on site.

Talks to doctors and nursing staff can be also arranged on request by contacting the AA General Service Office in York (01904 644026).

What is the best way to get AA help for a problem drinker?

By far the best way to get help is to give them the AA telephone number (0800 9177 650) or to call the number while the patient or client is with you and hand them the phone.

The AA telephone helpline is manned by AA members with at least one year of sobriety who will offer to arrange for a member to contact them to take them to a local meeting. A similar service is available by email, please write to help@aamail.org

For more information please email health.sc@aamail.org to contact the Health team of Alcoholics Anonymous.
