Question Need Recovery info to send

Hi, does anyone know of any programs (recovery related) that reach out to prisoners and possibly send info to the inmates where they are. I am fully aware of the programs offered by the prison. But he can't participate in those right now. Thanks for any resources you all might have.

I'm sure if you do a "Google" search, you will find tons of information that you can send to your loved one.

My son does the NA Behind The Walls correspondence program as well as attend AA at the prison. He tried to get some one to write him thru the National Chapter but never heard back and then someone gave him a name for a local chapter and he has been writing and doing the steps for a year now .
