"While AA is not affiliated with any form of alcoholism treatment, AA Treatment committees are essential in carrying the AA message into treatment settings where the suffering alcoholic may be introduced to AA for the first time. According to the AA 2014 Membership Survey, 74% of our members cited treatment or counseling as an important part of their journey to AA The local Bridging the Gap program, or BTG, connects the new member being discharged from a facility to AA in their community. Clients can request contacts through the AA Temporary Contact/Bridging the Gap Request form. AA members can serve as AA Temporary Contact/Bridging the Gap Volunteers." (from this page)

Get Into Service!
Volunteers are always needed for AA service commitments and events, to help carry the message of recovery to those who are still sick and suffering. Volunteering for an event is a quick and easy way to get into service! Sobriety requirements depend upon the facility, event, or if you're helping to "bridge the gap" and take newcomers to meetings. Talk to our Treatment Coordinator (Dani M), Corrections Coordinator (Corey C), or any GSR for more info!
