About Suffolk County Intergroup

Our Intergroup covers all of Suffolk County, the North and South Shore, as far west as Amityville and all the way to Montauk Point. We have over 20 meetings listed on our meeting list, but many of the meetings are not well informed or represented by intergroup reps.  We do our best to keep groups informed.

Is your meeting represented?

Anyone can come to Intergroup! There is no abstinence requirement to attend. It’s the best way to be “in the know” of what is going on with OA, locally and nationally.

Join us!

Second Thursday of the month @ 7:00pm
