Girard is a city in Trumbull County, Ohio. It has members of its population who are having difficulties regulating their drinking. Alcoholics Anonymous or AA meetings in Girard provide these residents with assistance to help them overcome their drinking issues. AA is a global fellowship that provides people who are dependent on alcohol with strong peer support. AA’s guiding principles are the 12-Steps and 12 Traditions. One of the key frameworks of therapeutic treatment for substance abuse is the 12-Steps process. The principles of the 12-Steps help participants to aim for a personal and spiritual transformation. Though it encourages spirituality and developing a connection with a higher power, AA is not religious or associated with any religious organizations. In fact, it offers a great deal of diversity in how they use spirituality in their treatment process. Some AA fellowships are basically secular in nature, while others uphold the theistic idea of God based heavily on faith. The “sponsor” who acts as a fellowship mentor/coach and guide for new members is another crucial aspect of the 12-Steps process. These senior members, who have been sober for many years after overcoming alcohol addiction, are the leaders of AA. Alcoholics Anonymous Ohio and other meetings from other states are organized on AlcoholicsAnonymous.com.
