Super Committee (comprised of the following 3 committees):

  • Professional Outreach: Develops and distributes materials to spread awareness of OA and our Intergroup to Healthcare providers (hospitals, doctors offices, mental health providers, treatment centers) as well as community organizations (social service and religious organizations).

  • Public Information: Focuses on carrying the message of OA recovery and creating awareness of OA through various forms of media (social media, print/newspapers, websites, radio and television) and participating in public events, including health fairs, open houses and medical conferences.

  • Twelfth Step Within: Carries the OA message of recovery to those who still suffer within the OA Fellowship and addresses relapse and issues of membership retention. Offers the message of hope, encourages OA members to maintain recovery and prevent relapse. The committee also develops and initiates ways to reach out to members who may be in relapse, and who we have not seen in the rooms and to welcome them back.
