This page is dedicated to the questons submitted to the Las Vegas Central Office relevant to website navigation, upcoming events, schedules, etc. If you are looking for District committee or other service related meetings, please review the calendar portion of the website.
1) Why are there not any more and/or convenient AA meetings located on Las Vegas Blvd. (the Strip)? ANSWER: Very few local AA members actually live near the Strip and any proposed rent would be too cost prohibitive to lease space. The local AA community is fortunate to have been 'grandfathered' in several meetings originally designed to support casino employees.
There are meetings at 10 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 7:30 pm Mon, Fri and Sun, noon & 5pm on Saturdays at the Riviera Hotel Monaco Tower Rm 4217.
Harrah's Hotel on The Strip has meetings at 8 pm Wednesdays in the center of the Resort area. Mirage Hotel also has meetings at 6 pm Wed. Check with Guest Services for locations.
Riviera is on the north end of The Strip which may be too far to walk. You can take the double-decker Strip Deuce bus or the resort trolley. The Deuce has a reasonably priced 24hr.-pass that you can use to sightsee from Downtown casino area on the north to the outlet malls on the south end of The Strip.
2) Will someone come and pick me up to an AA meeting? ANSWER: Probably not. We get millions of tourists every year and it would place too much of a burden on the local AA community to provide that service. There is ample ground transportation via taxicab, bus or limousine. It is not guaranteed, but many times if you can find your way to a meeting, you might be able to ask for a ride back - but do not expect it. Budget between $20-$40 per meeting for transportation.
3) I am new in sobriety and concerned that Las Vegas might be dangerous to my sobriety. What should I do? ANSWER: The AA program (the Steps and Traditions) ensure us we can go anywhere if we are in fit spiritual condition and have a purpose. If your sobriety does not meet that criteria, you should be concerned; whether in Las Vegas, Honolulu or Manhattan.
4) I am a student and required to attend one or several AA meetings. What meeting would you recommend? ANSWER: If you are not a self-proclaimed AA member you should attend an OPEN meeting as defined on the HOME page. Also, it is inappropriate to take notes during the meeting and certainly document anything that is shared in the meeting.
5) I have a friend, a spouse, a family member or co-worker that might have a drinking problem. What can I do to help? ANSWER: Our experience, albeit as difficult as it might seem is for the concerned person to attend Al-Anon. The alcoholic seems to need to hit absolute bottom before recovery is a viable option and folks working a successful Al-Anon program have discovered that good intentions of enabling the practicing alcoholic could actually be detrimental. Please visit NEVADA Al-Anon or the national Al-Anon .
