Bay County Correctional Facility, Florida
New Way of Life Group
This group was founded and received its group number on Feb 19, 1998. Alan L., an inmate, was the driving force behind this group being organized. It meets in the Bay County Correctional Facility every Wednesday night at 7 PM and Friday nights at 6 PM. The original meeting schedule was Wednesday night and Sunday night for a Big Book study. Walt L was a long time outside sponsor who attended on Wednesday nights. When Walt moved away, there was a 2 year period where this group had no outside sponsor and was supported by the in house treatment program, Addictions Treatment Unit. In Jan 2003, the Big Book study was moved from Sunday night to Friday night. Current sponsors are Hugh S and Doug D.
Non-inmates must go through a screening process by CCA to obtain entrance to the prison. DOC credentials are not sufficient.
The group has an excellent library of AA literature which members may check out at will.
