I am responsible...

When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help,

I want the hand of A.A. always be there And for that: I Am Responsible

The only purpose of the Hospital and Institution Committee of Alcoholics Anonymous is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who is confined. The activities of this committee are based on, and governed by, the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.


We take panels into several local correctional facilities where inmates can't get out to attend a meeting.
