2015 List of Treatment Facilities in New Mexico

The list of treatment centers may not show every center. The list does not in any way imply affiliation with or endorsement by Alcoholics Anonymous, AA World Services, Inc., or The AA Grapevine, Inc.

Treatment Committee Report- 2015 March Area Assembly

Thank you District 11, for hosting the March Assembly! As usual the Assembly is always a time to fellowship, which I enjoyed very much. The Treatment Committee meeting went well with over 40 participants. Carrie N., Alternate Chair and I presented basic information related to service work in treatment facilities.

There was discussion about upcoming workshops and other Districts are welcome to host a Treatment workshop. It has been the practice of having Treatment, Bridge the Gap, and Corrections together. District 4, Las Cruces will be hosting a workshop on March 28th and District 16, Silver City will have theirs on April 25th.

I contacted Districts 19, 18, 13, 12, 11, & 3 in efforts to propose a workshop sometime this year (perhaps summer or fall) related to Treatment Centers in the Albuquerque Metro area. At Area Assemblies in the past year, there has been discussion about treatment centers and the coordination of volunteers into the centers. Service work in treatment centers have been going on for years in Albuquerque. I believe a workshop with DCMs, District Treatment Chairs, and individuals who coordinate meetings in treatment centers can be beneficial in efforts to streamline the coordination of volunteer opportunities and if anything heighten awareness on who is doing what. I respectfully proposed the following:

1.    Identify which District would be willing to take the lead on the Treatment & Bridge the Gap workshop by securing a facility to host a workshop 

2.    All Districts help distribute flyers and get the word out

I shared that I will be volunteering at the Treatment Booth at the 2015 International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia in July. I am looking forward to attending the Convention and representing Area 46.

Lastly, I have updated the New Mexico Treatment Centers’ list. It was brought up via “ask-it-basket” about listing and concerns about “affiliation”; therefore, we have added the following: “The list of treatment centers may not show every center. The list does not in any way imply affiliation with or endorsement by Alcoholics Anonymous, AA World Services, Inc., or The AA Grapevine, Inc.”. Thanks to Ralph T., Past Delegate and Brett B., Web Chair for providing input on how to address the issue.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to host a workshop.

In the Spirit of Service,

Lawrence M.
