Al-Anon Information Services and Helplines

An Al-Anon Information Service (AIS) is a local service established by one or more groups or districts located close enough to one another for easy access and communication.  An AIS exists to aid the groups it serves in the common purpose of carrying the Al-Anon message to the suffering families and friends of alcoholics.

Some AIS centers operate telephone helplines staffed by Al-Anon members, to help individuals looking for information about Al-Anon and where they can find information regarding Al-Anon meetings.

Area 11 has three Information Services Offices:

Statewide support:  Georgia Area Central Services (GACS) ,

Local Support offices:  Augusta/Fort Gordon Information Services  and Metro Atlanta Information Services (MAIS)
