Bridging the Gap – Temporary Contacts and Sponsorship


Experience shows that even though a client may have been participating in a group or meeting in a treatment facility or outpatient setting, there is anxiety about the transition to a regular group on the outside. With the reminder that A.A. has only sobriety to offer, many committees do try to provide some additional personal contact so this transition period can be made easier. In many places, this is referred to as “bridging the gap” between treatment and a home group.
