Frenchville, Maine AA meetings
Frenchville is an impressive city in Maine’s Aroostook County region known for having a significant number of French-speaking people. There’s also a large number of AA meetings in Frenchville to help support the community members who have alcohol use disorder. If you’ve never been to an AA meeting, you might be wondering what they are like. AA meetings in Maine do not differ very much from meetings in other parts of the country. Generally, a chair or leader of the group sets the agenda of the meeting. To start, somebody will read the AA preamble which among other things states that the only requirement for joining AA is the desire to stop using alcohol. Next, the Serenity Prayer is usually read out loud, but it’s important to remember that AA is not associated with religion and members, while encouraged to believe in some sort of higher power outside themselves, are not required to believe in any god. After this, there is usually a reading of a piece of AA literature, such as the Big Book before the group leader asks if there are newcomers. These newcomers will be welcomed and asked to share if they wish, but sharing is not forced. Next, the floor will be open for all to share and eventually the meeting ends. Often at the end of meetings, many will linger and talk with each other. You can expect these general procedures in most of the AA meetings in Frenchville.
