Our service work is done in the following areas:

  • Cooperation with meetings, Intergroups, and Regions to help support Public Information of ACA
  • Global Public Outreach - serves to create and maintain open lines of communication and carrying the ACA message to other 12 Step fellowships worldwide: AA, NA, Al-Anon, etc.
  • Public Outreach - serves to carry the ACA message through outreach to institutions (educational and health) and corporations, including corporate wellness programs and media public service announcements.

Mission: The primary purpose of Public Information is to provide information about ACA and its potential to help heal the effects of growing up in a dysfunctional family. The goal is to carry the ACA message to the general public, medical and mental health facilities and 12 step fellowships. These include doctor's offices, community centers, educational and professional communities, libraries, and corporations including wellness programs.

This is done through distribution of conference approved literature, public service announcements and participating in public events. Public Information cooperates with ACA meetings, intergroups and regions to share Public Information’s experience, strength and hope globally.
