Bridge the Gap

The Bridging the Gap program matches up someone new to AA who is leaving a treatment, correctional, hospital or detox facility with a temporary contact person who will take the newcomer to a variety of Alcoholics Anonymous meetings; introduce him or her to other AAs; ensure that he or she has the phone numbers of several AA members, and share the experience of sponsorship and a home group.

One of the more "slippery" places in the journey to sobriety is between the door of the facility and the nearest AA group or meeting. In order to bridge the gap, AA members have volunteered to be temporary contacts and introduce newcomers to Alcoholics Anonymous.

To contact the CPC (Co-operation with the Professional Community chair) for the Pembroke and area AA send an email to Co-operation with the Professional Community.
