I am amazed that this article did not mention the general Alcoholics Anonymous local telephone number. Most of the dozens of groups in the area are conducting online meetings, and some are beginning limited in person meetings as well. For a meeting and a time that is convenient for you, call the local Kansas City Office at 816-471-7229.
