Welcome to the Cooperation with the Professional Community Committee web page!

 

The history of A.A. is studded with the names of non-alcoholics, professionals and others who have interested themselves in the A.A. recovery program. Thousands of us owe our lives to these people, and our debt of gratitude knows no bounds. Alcoholics Anonymous in your Community, page 1, with permission of A.A. World Services, Inc.

Cooperation with the Professional Community (CPC) is an objective of A.A., and has been since our beginnings. We are always seeking to strengthen and expand our communication with professionals, and we welcome comments and suggestions. This helps us to work more effectively with professionals in achieving our common purpose: to help the alcoholic who still suffers.

Professionals who work with alcoholics share a common purpose with Alcoholics Anonymous: to help the alcoholic stop drinking and lead a healthy, productive life. If You Are a Professional…, page 3, with permission of A.A. World Services, Inc.

 

According to the latest Membership Survey of A.A. groups in the U.S. and Canada, “before coming to A.A., 59% of the members received some type of treatment or counseling (such as medical, psychological, spiritual, etc.) related to their drinking.

The finding means, probably, that more than one-third of our members are alive and sober in A.A. today because of A.A. cooperation with others in the field of alcoholism.

And millions more sick alcoholics are still out there …..”. How AA Members Cooperate with Professionals, p 21-22, with permission of A.A. World Services, Inc.

Alcoholics Anonymous has members and committees to communicate and offer resources as a way to cooperate with professionals in the community. Visit these links for a collection of downloadable pamphlets and more.
