We Are Open!
Intergroup Central Office is able to stay open and provide services to our local AA community through your 7th Tradition* donations. Thank you for all your support!
Central Office is currently staffed by volunteers to keep us going! Due to volunteer life situations, it is possible that the office will not be open at a specific time/day. We recommend you call ahead to verify.
CENTRAL OFFICE PHONE#: 503 399-0599.
Masks and 6-foot distancing are still required inside the Central Office. Please knock before you enter in case another customer is already inside. There will be a sign on the floor inside the door to guide you. The Office staff will be wearing masks and will complete your order for you. The customer area will be sanitized several times during the day to ensure your visit is comfortable and safe.
We encourage members and groups to continue to support Central Office through 7th Tradition* contributions to keep the phone working and the mail flowing.

Alcoholics Anonymous is…
A fellowship of people 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. (Copyright (c) The AA Grapevine, Inc.)
(Also a link from the Preamble title at the top of the Home Page Header.)
For Al-Anon schedules and info click here:
Information about Al-Anon is presented here as a service to members of the fellowship and/or their families. Neither the Willamette Valley Intergroup, nor the Central Office in Salem are affiliated with Al-Anon. (From the Al-Anon Service Manual Tradition Six “…Although a separate entity, Al-Anon should always cooperate with Alcoholics Anonymous”)
In relation to local AA Intergroups or Central Offices, Al-Anon may offer –
To name one or two members to act as liaison and to provide current lists of group contacts for Twelfth Step referrals.
To submit Al-Anon/Alateen meeting information for inclusion on AA’s local meeting list if asked to do so.
To reimburse AA for any expenses incurred on Al-Anon’s behalf, such as telephone calls, cost of printing meeting lists on which Al-Anon meetings are also listed, and copying costs.
Al-Anon performs its own Twelfth Step work in alcohol treatment centers, hospitals, and other facilities, and with professionals that work with families and friends of alcoholics.
Experience has shown that cooperation with A.A. can be mutually beneficial… “Therefore the following questions are provided here with the hope that they will be mutually beneficial in recovery.”

Singleness of Purpose – Solving Our Common Problem
“SINGLENESS OF PURPOSE” IS ESSENTIAL TO THE EFFECTIVE TREATMENT OF ALCOHOLISM. The reason for such exaggerated focus is to overcome denial. The denial associated with alcoholism is cunning, baffling, and powerful and affects the patient, helper, and the community. Unless alcoholism is KEPT RELENTLESSLY IN THE FOREGROUND, other issues will usurp everybody’s attention”. (From Box 459, published bimonthly the General Service Office of Alcoholics
