Correctional Facilities Committee

We meet every other month (Starting In January) @ 10:00 am in the Area 44 General Services Office at 2325 Plainfield Ave in South Plainfield.

The purpose of the Correctional Facility Committee is to coordinate the efforts of AA members and groups who are interested in carrying the message of recovery to alcoholics who are in correctional facilities. We also run a "Temporary Contact Program" that puts incarcerated individuals in touch with sober members living in the town where they will be living when released to help them make the transition to living in society.
