Meagan Project: Gamblers annoymous and Religion

My friend is in a twelfth step program, the anonymous program that most of us are familiar with, for gambling. Today I came across his Gamblers Anonymous booklet that he reads everyday, and after reading it, I learned the program is partially a religious program. The gamblers anonymous program states that all members should have a higher power.

  1. Great post. Religion is a great tool to propel personal and communal change. If you notice, institutions that help people who are in crisis always provide a “religious” guide because most of these people are not motivated by the mundane ( this is why they have not been able to leave behind detrimental habits), therefore, a “higher power” is needed as motivation.
