Cooperation With Professionals Committee

The CPC Committee works with various private and public professionals who are likely to encounter alcoholics needing a solution to alcoholism.  Examples include:  employees of government agencies, clergy, private employers, law enforcement professionals, medical and social workers, and others.


The goal is to present AA as a viable, long-term solution to alcoholism and facilitate referrals to AA.


Current Projects/Work:

  • AA Open Speaker Meetings & Presentations to Pastors, Employers, MCV Nursing Students and other Professionals

Public Information Committee

The goal of the Public Information Committee is to educate the general public about the disease of alcoholism and AA's role as a viable, lifelong solution to alcoholism.  Examples of P.I. projects include signs and billboards, published articles, our web site, and other electronic media,  educational forums in schools, and informational pamphlet distribution to various facilities and organizations.

  • AA Pamphlet Distribution
  • Into ACTION! Website

Treatment Committee


The Treatment Committee carries AA information and meetings into in-house treatment facilities, detox centers, and IOP's (Intensive Outpatient Programs).  The goal is to introduce patients to AA and facilitate entry into AA upon completion of treatment in order that the alcoholic will have a lifelong solution for his/her alcoholism.


Current Projects/Work:

  • Tuckers Hospital Meetings
  • IOP Presentations
  • VCU/MCV Hospital Patient Visitations

Correctional Facilities Committe
