Group and Individual Service Needs
There are always ways that each individual or group who wishes to participate in the 12th Step of Alcoholics Anonymous can lend a hand.
Here is a listing of some of the opportunities which are listed with RhodeIsland-AA.org
Bridging the Gap List - Would you be willing to take someone who is getting out of a Correctional facility to their first meeting, as they get released?
The chance of a successful transition and staying sober is greatly increased, if the person goes to a meeting the same day as they are released. Help them Bridge the Gap by giving them a ride to a meeting.
Area 61 Treatment Committee - This Committee staffs commitments for all facilities in Rhode Island who request incoming committments.
Central Service Treatment Committee - This committee staffs committments for Roger Williams Hospital Detox and Dual Diagnosis units.
Central Service Tape Committee - This committee is in the process of conversion of many cassette tapes which have been received by Central Service. This committment of service takes place at the office during business hours.
Special Needs Committee - The Special Needs Committee identifies special needs in our area in order to develop and offer resources to AAs with special needs and to AA groups so that the AA message is accessible to anyone who reaches out for it."
12th Step Phone Referral List - Central Service maintains a list of people in all areas who are willing to take referrals to assist individuals who have called in and need someone to talk to. Central Service will then match this person with a willing volunteer from our 12th Step list.
