Welcome To The Get Up, Get Out, Get Sober Group of Alcoholic Anonymous

Our group is very interested in serving newcomers more effectively. Please consider filling out our survey that’s designed to solicit input and feedback.

We use text messages to keep group participants informed with links to meeting topics as well as group news such as chip awards, optional physical meetings, and upcoming events. We’d like to include you in these in these group text messages. Please fill out this contact form if you’re interested in being included in these communications.

Would you like to speak to someone from GUGOGS but you don’t have their contact information? Please fill out this form and the group secretary will contact the person and get their permission to share their contact information with you.

The Atlanta AA Hotline 404-525-3178 is answered daily 9 AM – 12 AM. Call to reach volunteers for help and information on AA meetings. There are over 1,200 AA meetings each week in Atlanta.

If you’re new to AA , consider downloading and reviewing the pamphlets below which may address some of your most pressing questions and concerns. We are always happy to stay after any meeting to speak individually as well. All of us know how difficult it is to begin this journey of sobriety.

You’re also invited to attend our Friday in person meeting in Grant Park. This is a great way to get to know people personally and to discuss items face to face. When the weather is good, we meet at picnic tables in Grant Park across from 561 Cherokee Ave SE. When the weather is bad, our Friday in person meeting is held at St. John the Wonderworker Orthodox Church just up the street at 543 Cherokee Ave SE.

Here is a collection of useful resources to help you getting started and Step One.

This answer will allow you to explore meetings you might be interested in learning more about from this listing of Atlanta meetings)
