What Does East Central Illinois District 12 Do?
AA’s District 12 works hard to serve a large geographic area of East Central Illinois, which includes 83 AA Groups and 139 AA meetings each week in our District. We help facilitate AA service that usually is beyond the ability of any one Group to handle – such as bringing AA meetings into correctional facilities.
We also help “bridge the gap” for people coming home from correctional and treatment facilities by putting them in touch with local AA members & meetings in their home town. That transition between the door of the facility and local A.A. Groups and meetings is often one of the most “slippery” places in an individual’s journey to sobriety.
We also maintain the 24-hour/7 days a week AA telephone Hotline (217-373-4200) where any individual may talk anonymously with a sober alcoholic about any problem or question that individual may have about alcohol/ alcohol abuse and also find locations, days and times of the AA meetings each week in our District 12 area.
As part of our Cooperation with the Professional Community, we work with schools, doctors & others to provide AA information and resources. We prepare & distribute updated AA meeting lists to AA Groups and others such as hotels & motels for use by their out-of-area guests looking for local AA meetings to attend.
We appreciate it and welcome any questions. Of course, we are able to do all this through dedicated AA members who volunteer their time and efforts as part of their own journeys of recovery. And, we do this on a fully self-supporting basis relying solely on contributions from AA members and Groups like yours.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
