The Cooperation with the Professional Community (CPC) committee is one of the ways Alcoholics Anonymous communicates its message of recovery to the men and women who suffer from the disease of alcoholism.

Through this Committee, AA cooperates with professionals who, in the context of their work, will meet with people who cannot control their alcohol consumption. Among these professionals and other facilitators who practice or are in training, we find, in particular, physicians, nurses, social workers, educators, employers, lawyers, judges, clergy members and police.

The specific mission of the CPC committee is to inform these professionals about AA, the possibility of recovery from the progressive and fatal disease of alcoholism, using the A.A. program, and how they can guide alcoholics who might benefit, toward our fellowship.
