Treatment Committee Report- March 2016
Hello Area 46!
We had our first workshop of this rotation in District 7 with Bridge the Gap, and Corrections on the 21st of May 2016. The workshop was attended by people from all around the southern part of the state. Thanks to everyone that attended, District 7 for the hospitality and big thanks to Nicole and David our Bridge the Gap and Corrections Chairs for making the workshop successful.
I have been emailing and calling some of the treatment and rehab facilities around the state to verify they are still active. I would like to hear from anyone with information on new facilities or facilities that have closed, or requests for AA to take meetings into detox or rehab. Please contact me at “firstname.lastname@example.org” if you would like any information on treatment, interested in participating in treatment work, or help with workshops etc.
“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.
