Your Intergroup

Central Jersey Intergroup meets once a month and intergroup representatives from local meetings gather to share information about meetings and make decisions on how we will support the recovery of our members in Central Jersey. Central Jersey Intergroup Supports OA meetings in Union, Middlesex, Somerset, Hunterdon, Mercer (Princeton area),  and Monmouth counties. Some of the ways CJI has supported the 38 meetings in our area are:

1. Maintains a comprehensive website for the Central Jersey area
2. Provides a telephone hotline to obtain meeting information 908-253-3464
3. Keeps meeting lists updated.
