What We Do:
San Francisco A.A.’s Public Relations Committee provides information about A.A. to members of the community whose profession may bring them in contact with anyone who may suffer from the disease of alcoholism.
The message we carry is simply an extension of the 12 step approach, carry the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers, by informing the person in a position of trust of what A.A. is, what A.A. does and what A.A. does not do.
Why We Do It:
Many professionals have not had the opportunity to find out how the A.A. program works. There are a great many misconceptions about A.A. in the professional community.
The PR committee is prepared to meet with any professional group or individuals that would like more information about A.A. for use in their contact with the suffering alcoholic.
How We Do It:
We would be happy to:
- Arrange for AA members to present an overview of AA to you or your staff.
- Mail or deliver pertinent literature.
Professionals can include:
- Social Workers
- Medical Professionals
- Alcohol and Drug Counselors
- Union Groups
- Medical or professional students who will or may come in contact with alcoholism.
In the city & county of San Francisco you can reach the Chair of the Public Relations Committee by sending email to [email protected]
There is no charge for any of these services; as part of our tradition of being self-supporting, AA does not accept outside contributions. AA members volunteer for these activities because service to others aids our recovery from alcoholism.
