For professionals who work with alcoholics: Cooperation with the Professional Community

Cooperation with the Professional Community Committee (CPC)

Our Purpose

The purpose of CPC committees is to inform professionals and future professionals about A.A. — what we are, where we are, what we can do, and what we cannot do. They at­tempt to establish better communication between A.A.s and professionals, and to find simple, effective ways of cooperating without affiliating.

What We Do

Cooperating with nonalcoholic professionals is an effective way to carry the message to the suffering alcoholic. Such people often meet the alcoholic in places where A.A. is not present. Through professionals, alcoholics may be reached who might otherwise never find the program, or they may be reached sooner with the help of informed non-A.A.s.

Professionals who work with alcoholics share a common purpose with Alcoholics Anonymous: to help the alcoholic stop drinking and lead a healthy, productive life. We can serve as a source of personal experience with alcoholism as an ongoing support system for recovering alcoholics.
