You may be thinking that recovery is just for people with alcohol or drug problems. The truth is that only one third of the people attending Celebrate Recovery are dealing with chemical dependencies. Many of us have created ungodly and unhealthy methods for handling life. Regardless of your struggle, whether it's emotional, relational, financial, spiritual, sexual or whatever, Celebrate Recovery will teach you to make the healing choices that will help you become the person God created you to be. If you have hurt that haunts your heart, hang-ups that cause you pain or habits that have messed up your life Celebrate Recovery is the place for you.
What is Celebrate Recovery?
Celebrate Recovery's focus is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through Eight Recovery Principles and the Christ Centered Twelve Steps. This experience allows us to be changed. We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. In addition we become willing to accept God's grace in solving our life problems.
By working and applying the Biblical principles we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program, we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power - Jesus Christ.
Who is Celebrate Recovery For?
It's for anyone, young, old, male, female, you, and me. It's for anyone who has a habit, hurt, or a hang-up, or anyone who wants to reach out and help others. The biblical principles modeled through the twelve steps can help all of us. So this isn't just about drugs and alcohol, it is about finding healing from anything that is keeping us from the life God meant for each of us to have. It is about growth, getting healthy again, and growing closer to God. Whatever you are struggling with, addiction, anger, drugs, alcohol, pornography, anxiety, depression, or any other life issues you may have Celebrate Recovery can help.
