Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than on promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, TV, and films.
Tradition Eleven is our guide whenever there is an opportunity to be public. We are reminded to preserve our anonymity emphasizing that it is RCA that is important–not the individual
Public relations is on-going in the program, For example, when we desire to “carry the message,” we may provide information or locations of meetings, using only the first names of the group contact couples. We may also leave RCA information on bulletin boards or at treatment centers to let other couples know there is hope for intimacy in their coupleships through a Twelve Step program. We also maintain RCA websites where interested people may find information about couple recovery. We feel that providing this information to the inquiring public without emphasizing end results is attraction, rather than promotion.
Our RCA public relations policy not only means providing information to the public but reaching out couple to couple. When couples in RCA practice their recovery and live in the solution, they become more healthy and attractive. This in itself can elicit an attraction to the program from people who have seen a couple struggle, and now see them with a sense of serenity and spirituality.
