EXTENDING THE HAND OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS

Treatment facilities committees are formed to coordinate the work of individual AA members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to alcoholics in treatment facilities, and to set up means of transcending from the facility to an AA group in the individual’s community.

BASIC COMMITTEE FUNCTIONS

The purpose of Treatment Committee is to assist members to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to Treatment Facilities and outpatient settings. In addition to bringing the message of hope for recovery to alcoholics in a variety of treatment settings, the Treatment Committee demonstrates to administrators and staff "how it works" and are instruments of attraction to the AA program. The Active Treatment Committee provides information about AA as well as literature and guidelines for setting up AA meetings in treatment facilitates and outpatient settings.
