Dear Ms. [Mr.] Doe:

This letter is to introduce you to the Adult Children of Alcoholics®/Dysfunctional Families
(ACA) fellowship. ACA is an anonymous Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition program of women
and men who grew up in alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional homes. Through our
attendance at meetings and reading our literature, we discover how our childhood affected
us in the past and influences us in the present. We take positive action by practicing the
Twelve Steps, focusing on the Solution, and accepting a loving Higher Power of our own
understanding. We find freedom from the past and a way to improve our lives today.

We have a common purpose: to help the adult child who still suffers to lead a healthy
productive life. Some who seek recovery from growing up in an alcoholic household are
not able to attend meetings when they want to. They have limited contact with the shared
experience that our fellowship offers through its meetings.

Our Hospitals and Institutions (H&I) subcommittee can bring presentations of ACA
recovery to interested residents in your facility. We offer our Fellowship Text, Twelve Step
Workbook, and other literature, if you approve. You may also order this same literature
online at

To connect with an ACA member from a local ACA Intergroup [group] to discuss a time to explain
what we have to offer, please contact ____________________________.
