Multi-District Corrections Committee

The purpose of a correctional facilities committee is to coordinate the work of individual A.A. members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to alcoholics behind the walls, and to set up means of smoothing the way from the facility to the larger A.A. community through prerelease contacts.

A correctional facilities committee may function within the structure of a General Service Conference Area Committee or a Central Office (Intergroup). In A.A.’s early years, prison Twelfth Step work was usually done by an individual group or an individual member. As A.A. has grown, however, it seems that a committee formed within the A.A. service structure works more effectively.

Prior to 1977, services to correctional and treatment facilities were provided under the umbrella of the Institutions Committee. Because of rapid growth, the 1977 General Service Conference voted to dissolve its Institutions Committee and two new committees, one on correctional facilities and one on treatment facilities, were formed. This division was created to provide better service to groups and meetings in both kinds of facilities.

Here are the groups that have requested to go to the Talbot Driver Intervention and the dates they were scheduled to attend.

*Only send 2 group members, please*

Due to request of Talbot Services to have only two AA members present during the driver intervention classes it was decided that correction committee members will be fulfilling the driver intervention commitments through June, 2021.  This is temporary and related to COVID concerns. Please contact Correction Chairs, Geno or Dawn at Corrections.Chair@area55aa.org with any questions or concerns.
