This is AA
In thinking about this Tradition I’m reminded of my friend George. In the fall of 94 I was on our local intergroup call list. Late one evening, I was asked to give George a call, as he might want help. George said that he had tried “AA” before but it had never worked—during several previous stays in treatment, he’d gone to meetings there. It was a great surprise to George when I said that most of those meetings were run by the facilities; they were not AA groups but a function of the treatment center or hospital. I said I would be glad to meet him and show him the program of recovery that worked for me—as outlined in our book Alcoholics Anonymous—and introduce him to an AA group.
