HISTORY - In the late 1980’s, suitable, reliable meeting facilities for twelve step groups in central and northern Medina  County were difficult to find.  Several long time A.A. members decided that a permanent place was needed to hold  twelve step group meetings.  The current facility was secured in 1989.  After many donations, thousands of hours of  volunteer labor, the support of the City of Brunswick and The Medina County Drug Abuse Commission, The Twelve  Step Recovery Club was opened in March of 1990.  MCDAC continued to support the Club for several years but, now,  it is self-sufficient, receiving no grants or tax supported contributions of any kind.  The Club is continuing its work,  providing a reliable place for 12 step groups to meet and a safe refuge for recovering persons through group rent, fund  raising events and donations.  The organization is administered by four Officers and a board of trustees, all  volunteering their time to see to the daily Club business.  The Club is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization for charitable  and educational purposes.  No part of the net earnings inure to the benefit of private share holders or individuals.  Although there have been many, many people that have had a big impact on the success of  the Club since it’s inception, there is no one who gave more of himself to the ongoing success  of the Club as the founding President, Richard “Dick” Griffin who served more than 18 years  as the President until his death in 1998.  Of all of the many good  people that worked so hard to bring the club into existence, Dick is  the one that stayed at the helm and kept it going.  He and his  beloved wife Freda have left a lasting impression on the Club and  will forever be missed by all that knew him.  In March 2000, on the  occasion of our twentieth anniversary the meeting room was  dedicated to the everlasting memory of Richard “Dick” Griffin, our  friend.  The Club is continuing on it’s mission to support recovery from alcoholism and drug  addiction.  We maintain a 7 day per week schedule, open every afternoon for fellowship  and coffee, open every evening for meetings, supporting the 12 steps to recovery.
