Corrections Committee

Welcome to the District 58 Area 59 Corrections Committee.

Our mission is to coordinate the work of A.A. members and groups to carry the A.A. message of recovery to alcoholics in prisons and other correctional institutions.

We fulfill the following needs:

  • Taking 12 Step meetings inside correctional facilities
  • Providing Big Books and other conference-approved literature to correctional facilities for inmates to request
  • Becoming a “bridge” by taking newly released members to meetings
  • Writing letters to men and women who want recovery support while they serve time
  • Serve as a clearinghouse of information that District corrections chairs and individual AAs can bring back to their groups

Facilities we serve

We currently take meetings into the following institutions:

  • Schuylkill County Prison
  • FCI Schuylkill
  • SCI Coal Township
  • SCI Mahanoy
  • SCI Frackville

Note: “AA is not allied with any sect, denomination or politics, organization or institution” – while Corrections Committee coordinators by necessity work with correctional facility staff to “clear” AAs who wish to attend 12 Step meetings, and supply conference-approved literature to facilities for distribution to inmates, neither the District 58 Area 59 Corrections Committee, individual members of the Committee, nor District 58 Area 59 itself is affiliated with any correctional institution.
