There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.
CAVACs offer front-line services to all victims of crime and their immediate family and to witnesses to a crime. The centres provide assistance regardless of whether the perpetrator of the crime has been identified, apprehended, prosecuted or convicted.
