This committee takes meetings into treatment facilities and carries the AA message to the alcoholic who still suffers there. They share their experience, strength, and hope by utilizing the AA Meeting format which allows for sharing by all who attend. Typically, two or more alcoholics bring the meeting to the treatment center in the format that works best for each team member. The only rules are the 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.
This is an excellent opportunity for the newcomer and the old-timer alike to get involved with twelfth step work. The rewards are great and the feeling of helping others is a spiritual experience for all in attendance. Together, we can make a difference!
This committee also provides informational literature that informs the residents that Alcoholics Anonymous exists, how to contact AA, and what AA is and is not. We inform the residents about how to get to that first meeting once they are discharged and on their own, what to expect there, and how to find the help they need.
