Treatment Committee Report- Dec 2017
Hello Area 46,
I wanted to say thank you for allowing me to be of service for the last 2 years. People always say they wish they could have done more and I feel the same way. I started thinking of all the things I should have or could have done. Time has just flown by. Our new Treatment chair is going to be Carrie from Las Cruces. I am sure she is going to do a great job. If your group or District is interested in taking on a treatment commitment please let Carrie know! If you looking for background information on treatment there is downloadable literature on the GSO website. We also have a list of treatment facilities on the New Mexico AA website www.nm-aa.org if you are looking for a facility that might like a group to take meetings into. You never know unless you ask! Keep up the good service work everyone!
“Many happy sober A.A. members have found that the best cure for a “dry drunk” or a self-pity binge is working with another still-suffering alcoholic. Seeing other alcoholics recover, whenever they do, is almost as great a reward as our own sobriety.!” (A.A. in Treatment Settings Brochure)
The list of treatment centers may not show every center. The list does not in any way imply affiliation with or endorsement by Alcoholics Anonymous, AA World Services, Inc., or The AA Grapevine, Inc.
