BRIDGE THE GAP

Bridge the Gap is a transitional program directed towards individuals who want to continue their sobriety after leaving a treatment or correctional facility. Bridge the Gap members are “temporary contacts” who will accompany new members to AA meetings, help them meet people in recovery, get phone numbers and contacts, and answer AA related questions as they make their transition into the AA community. If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in this program, please feel free to contact us at the Central Office.
