Intergroup Information

Being of service is one of the most important tools in our recovery, keeping us coming back and remaining sober. Los Angeles Intergroup (IG) Officers and IG Meeting Representatives from individual meetings meet to exchange information and vote on motions to support our fellowship and reach out to the addict who still suffers. (All are welcome.)
