The answering service provides an Alcoholics Anonymous listing in the local telephone directory. As the answering service receives inquiries from those seeking help, it may refer callers to a nearby AA meeting or may have a member contact them. The responsibility of some answering services falls exclusively on AA members while others hire a commercial service which answers the phone and connects callers to an AA group or AA contact.
