The committee provides information about A.A. to those who have contact with alcoholics through their profession, including health care professionals, educators, members of the clergy, lawyers, social workers, union leaders, and industrial managers, as well as those working in the field of alcoholism. Information is provided about where we are, what we are, what we can do, and what we cannot do.
Many professionals consider A.A. to be a valuable resource for alcoholics who want help. When there is a good working relationship between A.A. members in the community and paid alcoholism workers, the sick alcoholic is the winner—he or she gets the help needed from both.
We are not in competition with these non-A.A.s; we have our separate functions. A.A. is not in the business of education, research, medicine, counseling, Treatment Facilities Facilities, prevention, or funding. We simply have a message to carry about a program of recovery for alcoholics—a program that works for hundreds of thousands who want it.
The professional can help the alcoholic who wants it—by education, counseling, and rehabilitative Treatment Facilities Facilities—and can also be of aid through making the community aware of and care about the millions still suffering from the progressive illness of alcoholism.
