Area 83 Corrections Facility Resources
The purpose of a corrections committee is to coordinate the work of individual A.A. members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to alcoholics behind the walls, and to set up means of smoothing the way from the facility to the larger A.A. community through pre-release contacts..
Pre-Release / Bridging the Gap/ Temporary Contacts, etc...
Experience suggests that even though an inmate may have been participating in a group or meeting in a correctional facility, there is often anxiety about the transition to a regular A.A. group on the outside.
With the constant reminder that A.A. has only sobriety to offer, many committees do try to provide some additional personal contact, so this transition period can be made easier.
