12th Step Calls

12th Step Call Volunteers work hand-in-hand with the NDIAA Office and Home Answering. All volunteers must have one year of continuous sobriety.
12 Step volunteers work with Home Answering and NDIAA Office. They do everything from talking to an alcoholic about AA, taking someone to their first meeting or taking an out-of-town visitor to a meeting.
Whereas Home Answering Volunteers take the initial call and disburse it, the 12 Step Volunteer do the actual "leg work".
When someone calls either the Home Answering hotline or the NDIAA office, contact information is obtained and depending on male or female and location, the appropriate person is contacted and given the information. The 12 Step Volunteer then contacts that person.
Most of the time you will just be talking to them on the phone and then perhaps meeting them at a meeting. However, there are times when it could be necessary to get another person and actually go out and do a 12 Step call.
You will only be contacted if someone calls from your zip code, therefore you could go months without receiving a call.
NDIAA Office staff will make sure that volunteers will have all information needed to do 12 Step work.

Home Answering

Volunteer to take incoming AA calls forwarded to you when the NDIAA office is closed
  • We try to answer as many questions and listen to individuals as time permits as we are but a link to all who call, whether emotional or not
  • We are not a taxi service
  • We only give rides to people if they are going to a hospital, detox, rehab or AA meeting
  • Get newcomer to their first and second meeting of driver's choice
  • Help out of town visitors to a meeting in their area

Finding people to help with 12 Step calls can be difficult at times. Let the caller know that you are going to try to find someone but if you are unable to find someone CALL THE PERSON BACK AND LET THEM KNOW! Another alternative is to find someone who can call and talk to the person, even if they can't pick them up.

No one should do 12 Step work by themselves, always bring someone with you! This is for your safety and the person you pick up.

If the caller says anything about harming themselves or others, try to get as much information about their location and hang up and dial 911. We are NOT equipped or trained to help in those situations.
