Bridging the Gap (BTG)

Bridging the Gap is a program to help connect people leaving a treatment facility with the A.A. community.

This essential 12th Step work is done by A.A. members who connect newly-sober people with A.A. meetings and members and who serves as an initial A.A. contact person for newcomers.



A.A. experience suggests that attending meetings is helpful to ensure sobriety. As a BTG volunteer, you may be the first contact a newcomer has with Alcoholics Anonymous.

How to Get Involved

The Joint Treatment Committee tries to "bridge the gap" to A.A. for people leaving treatment. Resources are available for out-patients, health care professionals, and AA members:
