A long history of A.A. experience has shown that attending meetings regularly is critical. One of the more “slippery” places in the journey to sobriety is between the door of a treatment facility or institution and the nearest A.A. group or meeting.
In order to bridge the gap, A.A. members have volunteered to be temporary contacts and introduce newcomers to Alcoholics Anonymous.
It is suggested that the temporary contact take the newcomer to a variety of A.A. meetings, introduce the newcomer to other members of A.A., insure that he or she has the phone numbers of several A.A. members, and share the experience of sponsorship and a home group.
You too can help by joining our Bridging The Gap committee meeting this Saturday – either at Central Office or via Zoom.
