Treatment Committees are formed to coordinate the work of AA members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to alcoholics in treatment and outpatient settings and to set up means of “bridging the gap” from the facility to an AA group in the individual’s community.
What Does the Treatment and Accessibilities Committee Do?
- Helps coordinate with Districts and facility administration to bring AA meetings into facilities within Area 27.
- Encourages group participation in district and area treatment committees.
- Works closely with Central Offices and Intergroups in Area 27 to support Bridging the Gap (BTG)
- Arranges the purchase and distribution of literature for groups and meetings in facilities.
Ways you or your group can help:
- Volunteer to take a meeting into a facility (Weekly, Monthly, Bi-Monthly)
- Visit one Treatment meeting (it really does make a difference)
- Sign up to be a Bridge the Gap Volunteer
- Talk with your District Treatment Committee Chair or DCM and ask them if they need help
- Volunteer to bring literature to a facility
- Volunteer to share your story at a DUI Class
- Help start a new meeting
- If you don’t have Treatment in your district right now, help get it going or see if neighboring districts could use your help
