Welcome to the Treatment Committee web page!


Our Vision For every newcomer to meet a sober alcoholic at a meeting in their hometown after they leave a detox, rehab, or sober house.

Part of “Bridging the Gap” between a treatment program and A.A. is the Temporary Contact Program, which is designed to help the alcoholic in an alcoholism treatment program make that transition. In order to bridge the gap, A.A. members have volunteered to be temporary contacts and introduce newcomers to Alcoholics Anonymous.
