Alternate Chair - Carrie N. 

2014 List of Treatment Facilities in New Mexico

Treatment Report - January 2015

Kudos to our fellow AA brothers and sisters for hosting a great Area Assembly in Las Cruces! The Treatment Committee was well attended, which we had 36 members in attendance. Carrie N., Alternate Chair assisted with the presentation as she shared about the basic functions of the Treatment Committee:
Some districts do have and are very active and others do not. It was suggested that they work with their DCM to see how to engage members to participate in service work.

I was happy to announce the updated Treatment Center list is posted on the website listing all New Mexico rehab centers, detoxes, halfway houses, and outpatient programs. It was suggested if any centers where missing to please contact me in efforts to keep the list updated.

There was some questions that where presented for the participants to share:

1. Does your District have a Treatment Committee/Chair?

2. Is AA members going in to take meetings (coordinated by the District, Group, or Individual AA Members)?

It varies around the State and in some areas requires more communication on who is going in. Having a District Treatment Committee can be helpful to ensure that all are on the same page. The Albuquerque Districts (i.e., 18, 13, 12, and 11) are a good example for more awareness on who is taking in meetings. Members have been taking meetings for a long time and have their systems in place. It was suggested that Albuquerque District consider a Treatment and Bridge the Gap workshop in efforts to heighten awareness on who is doing what. Ultimately, this could foster the development of allowing more members to do services work.

3. Identify what residential and outpatient programs are in your District/Community? In larger cities there are many; whereas, in others there is not. Other consideration for service are hospitals, nursing homes, and jails. It’s important for each district to inventory its community for treatment centers and other institutions to carry the message to the still suffering alcoholic.

Over all the Assembly was a success thanks to the willingness of all to be of services. Much gratitude and love for my fellow AAs. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

In the Spirit of Service, Lawrence M.
