Privacy Statement

This facility, and the AA program, has rules for privacy and anonymity:  So what you SEE and HEAR here, must STAY here.

The AA Preamble Copyright © The A.A. Grapevine, Inc.

            Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

            The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

How it Works

            Big Book pages 58 – 60 (through item C “sought)


            Big Book page 83, last paragraph (“If we are painstaking…”) through page 84 ending at “They will always materialize if we work for them.”

Bridge the Gap Card

A suggested way of presenting?

“In treatment, there is a focus on discovery. But, out in the world, AA Groups work toward recovery.  And, fortunately, there is a way to Bridge the Gap!  Just ask the staff, or your counselor, for a Blue Bridge the Gap card and fill out your contact information.  Ask your counselor if you don’t know your release date. 

Then, the cards are picked up by AA members every week and someone from the program will call you when you get out and try to help you find meetings…. and, possibly…, if needed…., even arrange for a ride to your first one.  And it doesn’t matter where you live.  There are meetings all over the world and this is a way to get connected and continue to work on your sobriety once you get back home.

AA Members Share Only

(AA Members share their experience, strength, and hope in a general way…,  what they were like…, what happened…, and what it’s like now.)

End of Meeting

Lord’s Prayer 

Or Short Prayer:  May the Lord watch between me and thee, while we’re absent… one from the other.

Or Responsibility Statement:  I am responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of AA always to be there. And for that I am responsible.
