Treatment Committee Report – 2020

Greetings Area 46,

I’m Jeff, your Area Treatment Chair, and it is an honor and privilege to be of service in this position. I am available to work with all of the district Treatment chairs, and the DCM’s who do not yet have Treatment chairs. As a Committee Chair, I am looking forward to learning what your districts are doing and how I can be of support to all of you.

If your group or District is interested in establishing a treatment commitment please let me know! If you are looking for background information on treatment there is downloadable literature above and on the GSO website. We are working with the Website Committee to  update the list of the treatment facilities on the New Mexico AA website if you are looking for a facility that might like a group to take meetings into.
“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)


In Love and Service,

Jeff B.
