Bridging the Gap: Be a temporary contact between the treatment facilities and outside of AA.

This is a commitment to help newcomers integrate into AA when they get home from treatment. You would meet them at their first meeting (hopefully the day or the day after they get out). Introduce them to people in the program, help them get numbers, a meeting schedule, literature, etc. Stay in touch, and maybe meet them at a second or third meeting. This is such a great way to do service work and help a newcomer by guiding him or her through the first week or so! One year of sobriety is preferred for this commitment. If you need a ride to an A.A. meeting from treatment facilities, call Marlene B. at 970-889-5557.

Treatment: Looking for Service volunteers!!!

Join the District 21 Treatment Committee and share your experience, strength, and hope with men and women in our local rehabilitation centers. Please help us carry the message of hope to these individuals who are about to re-enter the real world. Remember, you can only keep what you have by giving it away.

The purpose of the Treatment and Accessibility Committee is to carry the message of recovery in Alcoholics Anonymous to the still suffering alcoholic client and staff members in treatment & accessibility facilities; To maintain contact and work together with BTG (Bridge the Gap), CPC (Cooperating with Professionals in the Community and PI (Public Information Committee). Also, to become familiar and aware of the different ways we can help members better access AA if they are differently-abled, “homers” (members who are homebound), members in the hospital, visually impaired, have auditory challenges, or others who have difficulties participating in Alcoholics Anonymous.

This committee chair position is a 2-year commitment. The requirements for this chair position are:

1. Being a sober member of alcoholics anonymous for 2 years and the drive and desire to get the message of AA into treatment and accessibility facilities.

2. Ability to attend Area 10 Treatment and accessibility Committee meetings-This meeting is monthly.

3. Being comfortable with knowing that she/he will not be anonymously doing this job. Also being comfortable speaking at outside events and stating they are affiliated with AA.

I learned early in my sobriety that if I wanted to stay sober I would have to make service part of my sobriety. My first interactions with service were with my home group, making coffee, bringing cake, and helping set up. After about a year of sobriety, I joined the Treatment Committee, which is now the Treatment and Accessibility Committee. I really enjoyed taking meetings into treatment centers and carrying the message that AA works and you never have to drink again if you don’t want to. I learned everything I know from this committee. I have no background in treatment, interacting with professionals, or public speaking, but I know this 12-step work is vital and that’s why I do it. I took this committee chair position when I had 3 years of sobriety, and I share that with you today because you don’t have to have long-term sobriety to take a committee chair position or do service work.

As a committee chair, I encourage AA members to assume responsibility for carrying the message to alcoholics in treatment and accessibility facilities, review all aspects of service to AA groups in treatment and accessibility facilities and make recommendations for changes and improvements. I clarify what AA can do and cannot do, within the traditions, to help alcoholics in treatment and accessibility facilities.

Some of the things I GET TO DO being a committee chair:

*Organizing a monthly Committee meeting. It’s on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM at Harmony Presbyterian church at 400 E. Boardwalk. Right now we are meeting on Zoom.

*Attending the Monthly District meeting, on the 1st Sunday of the month at 5:30 PM at 301 E Drake and providing a report.

*Attending the monthly area 10 meeting, usually by calling in because it is in the Denver area, on the 1st Saturday of the month. Right now we are meeting on Zoom.

*Communicating with the Treatment Reps and sending reminders for rotations.

If you have any questions or interest in rotating into this service position, please email [email protected]

This committee meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month, 6:45 – 7:45p on Zoom.
