The Hospital and Treatment Committee has one purpose: to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to alcoholics who are in treatment facilities. The activities of this committee are based on and governed by the twelve traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. We are part of the Area 72 Treatment Facility Committee, and work on a local scale to better serve the 5 districts within the Eastside Intergroup.

The Hospital and Treatment Committee meets on the 1st Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m., all are welcome to attend.
