Written by and for incarcerated alcoholics, this slim, staple-less volume contains 26 stories by A.A. members who found their way to the Fellowship and got sober while behind bars. All of these individuals reveal how, through the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, they transformed their lives and found serenity despite their surroundings.
One after the other, these recovering alcoholics — of all ages and all types — share how they came to grasp that no prison is as formidable as active alcoholism. From one story: “It may sound crazy to feel freedom in jail or prison. But that’s exactly what I have. I’ve known more freedom in these past 15 months than in all my 32 years of life.”
Full of clear-sighted honesty, personal revelations and, most of all, hope in the most challenging circumstances, A.A. in Prison: Inmate to Inmate is a must-have piece of literature for incarcerated alcoholics as well as for the A.A. member engaged in service in correctional facilities.
A.A. in Prison: Inmate to Inmate has been approved by the General Service Conference.
