Adhoc 121111

Adhoc 121111


This adhoc attempts to streamline and address some consistent issues brought up by GSRs at PCASC.  It is broken down into a few phases in order to discover what system of service would work best and be accepted by all groups as a viable solution.

  • Lack of representation, groups not being represented
  • Mentorship
  • ASC takes too long
  • Not enough people in service
  • Apathy

Passaic County April 2013 GSU Meetings

Passaic County Area has been experimenting with the new service system over the course of the last few months.  The ASC has temporarily created 5 GSUs or Group Support Units by geographical communities.  After the hosting recovery meeting is over, representatives from each of the groups come together in a meeting to discuss group and community issues.  If you attend meetings in Passaic County and want to help those groups be of better service to the community and the still sick and suffering addict please come share your input and ideas.  All are welcome to attend this informal gathering.
