Bridging the Gap: Providing temporary contacts for alcoholics being released from institutions
Bridging The Gap is a program designed to provide that essential link between treatment and recovery. The AA Corrections Committee partners men and women, with at least a year or more of continuous sobriety, and who are willing to be a temporary guide to the program with patients just leaving an institution. The temporary contacts will take the newcomer to a few meetings, introduce them to fellow members of AA and insure that he or she has the phone numbers of several AA members. Our goal is to make the newcomers feel comfortable with AA and help them build a support system that is critical to sobriety. To contact the “Bridging the Gap” representative in your district call 1-800-449-1359 or to volunteer, fill out the form below and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
