Committee Chair- Carrie N.
Treatment Committee Report
Greetings Area 46,
I’m Carrie, your new Area Treatment Chair, and it is an honor and privilege to be of service in this position. I am looking forward to working with all of the new district Treatment chairs, and the DCM’s who do not yet have Treatment chairs. As a new 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 taking on a treatment commitment please let me know! If you are looking for background information on treatment there is downloadable literature on the GSO website. I recently updated the list of the 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.
“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,
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.
