OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) -- — Through these difficult times, local groups with Alcoholics Anonymous want you to know that they’re still having meetings just in a different way.

The Omaha Area Central Office of Alcoholics Anonymous indicates there haven’t been in person meetings for 6-8 weeks but they have still been getting together to help each other.

They’ve been meeting through the online conferencing platform Zoom and there are multiple meetings everyday. Daily Omaha Zoom A.A. Meetings found here.

In some cases they’re having 10 people, in others there are more than 250 people from around the country. For some it may be easier to attend online.

Local A.A. members like Scott say they want people to know someone is there for them.

“Being isolated, being lonely, being unique are some of the hallmarks of people who are struggling with alcoholism, and in an environment where they can’t get out and be social I think that it’s a big concern,” Scott explained.

They are also doing seminars on Saturday and Sunday for the next two weekends, for more info visit:
