San Diego
Gamblers Anonymous


Intergroup Services

GA Hotline: The San Diego GA Hotline is a toll-free information line that connects callers with "live" Gamblers Anonymous members who can provide times and locations of Gamblers Anonymous meetings and other information.

Pressure Relief: Gamblers Anonymous helps members address financial and legal pressures that must be overcome if he or she is to build a lasting recovery. An important part of this process is the Pressure Relief Group Meeting. This meeting is conducted by other recovering Gamblers Anonymous members who suggest approaches for dealing with personal finances and repayment of creditors.

Public Relations: The Public Relations Representative is the primary Point of Contact for GA Public Relations in San Diego. The Public Relations Respresentative may carry the message to the compulsive gambler who still suffers by using the mediums of telephone, mail, newspapers, films, radio, television, churches, charitable organizations, service clubs, learning institutions, and other dignified methods approved by the San Diego Intergroup.

Social and Fund Raising Activities: Join us for the Annual San Diego GA Beach Picnic. The GA Picnic is a day of fun, frolic, and fellowship for members, families, and friends.

Sunshine Activities: The San Diego Intergroup wants its members to know that others are thinking of them. The Sunshine Representative not only sends get well and sympathy cards, but also recognizes positive events, such as weddings and engagements.

Telephone List: The San Diego Intergroup maintains and produces a monthly phone/meeting list for all members and meetings wishing to be included. Group secretaries are primarily responsible for reporting and advising the following to the Phone List Representative:
1. Changes in dates
2. Telephone number changes
3. Home meeting preferred changes (only one meeting can be considered a home meeting)
4. Any other additions or deletions to the phone list as necessary.


Two Newcomer Meetings “90-Day Room” (Su6) and Monday Newcomer Meeting (M3) meet at Vista the La Mesa Christian Church, 4210 Massachusetts Ave, La Mesa, CA 91941. The goals of these meetings are to 1) provide help and hope for new members, 2) explain how to use GA tools, and 3) improve membership retention. This works if members with recovery attend and encourage new members, stress the importance of meetings, share how GA has helped in their recovery, and promote discussion during break or after the meetings. Featured Speakers or Topics of Discussion may include Pressure Relief, Meeting and Telephone List, Page 17 of the Combo Book, Unity Steps, Recovery Steps, Sponsorship, GAMANON, GA Literature, GA Organization (ISO and Intergroup), Trustees, and Personal testimony.
