Joint Treatment Facilities Committee

Welcome to the WAI Joint Treatment Facilities Committee page. We serve as a liaison between local treatment facilities, health care professionals, and the A.A. community. Our mission is to suport A.A.’s primary purpose — to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety — in the context of local treatment facilities and settings.

The committee collaborates closely with AA Districts and members who are the "boots on the ground" carrying AA's message into treatment facilities. The committee provides communications, scheduling, and materials to support AA's work with local treatment facilities. For a pamphlet on A.A. in treatment settings: Click Here.
