Treatment and Accessibilities Committee 2019

Contact Treatment & Accessibilities Chairperson


The treatment facilities committee is dedicated to the many AA members who carry the message into treatment facilities and outpatient settings.

There is probably no better place for an AA member to find a suffering alcoholic than in a treatment facility or outpatient setting.

You can help when no one else can.


The purpose of the Accessibilities Committee is to serve all Alcoholics making the AA message available to members with diverse accessibility needs. This would include those who may be hearing-, visually-, or speech-impaired, those who are homebound, chronically ill, those who use wheelchairs, walkers or crutches, and those who are developmentally challenged or who suffer from brain damage, stroke, etc. Whatever their challenge may be, it is hoped that they would never be excluded from A.A. meetings, Twelve Step work or A.A. service.

Members of this committee (CPC) provide information about AA to those who have contact with alcoholics through their profession, such as health care professionals, educators, members of the clergy, lawyers, social workers, union leaders, industrial managers, and government officials, as well as those working in the field of alcoholism.  Information is provided about where AA can be found, what AA is, and what AA can and cannot do.

CPC presentations are conducted by committee members who will be informed on AA and its history and are able to give an accurate and positive impression of Alcoholics Anonymous. We stress our primary purpose and Traditions of non-affiliation, self-support and anonymity.
