Celebrate Recovery is a Christian 12-step recovery program designed to offer relief from “hurts, hang-ups, and habits.” The program began in 1991 as a way to help people struggling with addiction or codependency. Since then, its scope has expanded and there are now meetings in churches all over the United States.
Celebrate Recovery (CR) provides a safe, non-judgmental environment where individuals' confidentiality is kept and they are free to explore healing through a growing relationship with God and others who share common experiences.
Starting March 20, 2023
The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to encourage fellowship, provide hope and to celebrate God's healing power in our lives as we work our way along the road to recovery. We are changed as we share our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another in a recovery support group.
is a Biblical and balanced 12-step program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. Some recovery programs deal only with alcohol, drugs, or another single issue. Celebrate Recovery takes a more comprehensive approach under which a limitless number of issues can be addressed, such as:
A typical Celebrate Recovery meeting includes:
6 pm - A 50-55 minute large group meeting that includes praise music,
prayer, and a testimony or teaching.
7 pm - A 50-55 minute open share small group meeting where you connect
with other Celebrate Recovery attendees. These groups are gender
specific, issue specific, and confidential.
- A 50-55 minute Newcomers meeting for 1st time attendees held
while the open share small groups meet.
8 pm - A time of refreshments and sharing life to close out the evening.
