Bridging The Gap – Alcoholics Anonymous Temporary Contacts

Part of Bridging the Gap between a treatment program and/or a correctional facility and A.A. is the Temporary Contact Program, which is designed to help the alcoholic in the facility make that transition from “inside” the program to life on the “outside.”

As you may know, one of the more “slippery” places in the journey to sobriety is between the door of the facility and the nearest A.A. group or meeting. Some of us can tell you that, even though we heard of A.A. in treatment or in prison, we were too fearful to go.

A.A. experience suggests that attending meetings regularly is critical. In order to bridge the gap, A.A. members have volunteered to be temporary contacts and introduce newcomers to Alcoholics Anonymous.

If you, (or someone you are working with), are being released from an Alcoholism program in a correctional or treatment facility and want to attend Alcoholics Anonymous after your release, the Temporary Contact Program of AA can match you with a volunteer AA member to get you to your first meetings and help you become acquainted with AA in your release area.

The Sunday meeting replaces their Thursday 7PM meeting. Please come out and help them celebrate this new addition and Greensboro’s only Grapevine meeting. The address for the LGBTQ Center is 2205 W. Bessemer Avenue.

Digital 7th Tradition Contributions

Some groups in District 23 have asked about ways to accept non-cash 7th Tradition contributions. As more and more of us carry less and less cash, being able to accept digital contributions has become a topic of conversation in many home group business meetings and at other levels of AA service. A good starting place to get informed about options is this set of Digital Contribution FAQs, produced by the Intercounty Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous in San Francisco and Marin counties in California.

Additionally, you may review page 3 of Winter 2017 edition of Box 459 from aa.org.

Should your home group decide to explore these and other options, we invite your GSR or any representative of your group to the monthly district meeting (2nd Thursday @ 6:30PM – see events) to share what you find and ask questions.
