Statement of Purpose

Bridging the Gap is a program designed to forge that essential link between treatment and recovery by providing temporary contacts for alcoholics being released from institutions.

In order to educate both the outside community and AA members about the purpose of Bridging the Gap we utilize:

Presentations: We are available to give presentations to institutions, AA business meetings, and district meetings in order to educate both the outside community and AA members of the purpose of the Bridging the Gap in order for it to work more effectively. If interested please see the Bridging the Gap contact information at the bottom of this page.

Literature: We have pamphlets that outline the purpose of Bridging the Gap in order to educate the professional community, AA members, and individuals interested in Bridging the Gap services.

Our Monthly Committee Meeting: Every last Sunday of the month we meet as a committee at 10 a.m. EST to discuss matters relating to Bridging the Gap and how we can best reach the newcomer being released from an institution.
