“Bridging the Gap” is a temporary contact program offered by Alcoholics Anonymous to persons leaving treatment and re-entering the community.
This program assists clients who request help finding meetings and rides, making the transition from treatment to the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous easier- thereby ‘bridging the gap’ between treatment and recovery in their community.
A local AA member will volunteer to contact a patient on his/her discharge date or shortly thereafter to help him/her find local meetings and start building a support group.
See the “Bridging the Gap” Pamphlet for a more detailed explanation.
If interested in being a contact person, email the “Bridging the Gap” coordinator for more information.
