Area 51 A.A. Corrections Conference

Freedom from Bondage - 35

March 8 - 10, 2024

Hampton Inn & Suites

200 Columbus Drive 

Aberdeen, NC 28315

CFC Purpose

The only purpose of the North Carolina Correctional Facilities Committee is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who is confined in our correctional facilities. The activities of this committee are based on and governed by the 12 traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. We work with and for cooperation with the administration of our correctional facilities, but are not affiliated with them.

“Both you and the new man must walk day by day in the path of spiritual progress. If you persist, remarkable things will happen. When we look back, we realize that the things which came to us when we put ourselves in God’s hands were better than anything we could have planned. Follow the dictates of a Higher Power and you will presently live in a new and wonderful world, no matter what your present circumstances.”
