Bridging the Gap

The local Bridging the Gap program, or BTG, connects new members being discharged from a facility to A.A. in their community.

Clients can request contacts through the A.A. Temporary Contact/Bridging the Gap Request form.

A.A. members can serve as A.A. Temporary Contact/Bridging the Gap Volunteers.

Committee members:

  • bring the message of hope for recovery to alcoholics in a variety of treatment settings
  • demonstrate to administrators and staff “how it works” and are instruments of attraction to the A.A. program
  • provide information about A.A., as well as literature and guidelines for setting up A.A. meetings in treatment facilities and outpatient settings
