The Hospitals & Institutions Service Committee of the Tri-County Intergroup of Alcoholics Anonymous – Sharing Our Experience on How to Stop Drinking
Hospitals & Institutions (H & I) is the service committee of the Tri-County Intergroup of Alcoholics Anonymous that coordinates AA members to bring 12 step recovery meetings into hospitals, institutions and rehabilitation centers in Raleigh NC and surrounding areas. AA members carry their message of experience, strength and hope into rehab centers in the Raleigh area to assist those wanting to get help in overcoming alcoholism. Sharing the pain once felt and the joy we now feel is an important part of the AA member’s 12 step recovery program, and assists those needing help with important information on how to successfully stop drinking, one day at a time.

What Does an AA Meeting at a Rehabilitation Center in Raleigh NC Look Like?
AA meetings at rehabilitation centers provided by the H & I Committee of the Tri-County Intergroup of Alcoholics Anonymous look similar to meetings found most anywhere else. The meetings at rehab centers are open meetings, and anyone permitted to attend by the rehabilitation center facilitating the meeting is welcome.
While individuals at rehab centers may be experiencing difficulties with “outside issues” other than alcoholism, the H & I Committee is dedicated to the primary purpose of Alcoholics Anonymous: to carry its message of hope to the still suffering alcoholic. Members of Alcoholics Anonymous focus on recovery from alcoholism and our individual experience on how to stop drinking when bringing an AA meeting to a rehabilitation center in Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville, Wake Forest and beyond. Below is a list of some helpful reminders for carrying the message on recovery from alcoholism to rehab centers in Raleigh NC:
- Follow all the rules of the facility. AA members are guests of the facility.
- Limit yourself to carrying your own honest message of alcoholism recovery.
- DON’T Talk about medication, psychiatry or scientific theories of alcoholism. This is territory for professionals. Our personal spiritual life does not make us experts on religion.
- Remember that you ARE AA to people in that facility. Your language, appearance, manners and mood all affect other’s opinions of our Fellowship. Your behavior can make sure AA is always welcome.
- DON’T Give agency personnel or patients any reason to be unhappy with Alcoholics Anonymous in Raleigh NC or as a whole.
- Always maintain a cheerful humility about how to stop drinking with assistance from the AA program. DON’T Brag about AA. Let results speak for us.
