What is CR like?

There are 3 main components that make up the Celebrate Recovery Program:

LARGE GROUP – This is where everyone meets together to hear either a recovery-centered Teaching or a personal Testimony of a changed life. We consider this a “shoulder to shoulder” experience.

OPEN SHARE – This is the time we break into separate gender and issue specific groups where each person is safe to share their struggles and victories with others who share similar hurts, hang-ups, and habits. We consider this a “face to face” experience.

STEP STUDY – It has been said that “you go to a meeting to feel better but you work the steps to get better”. Step Studies are a safe place to work through the 12 Steps in a gender specific group. They are a minimum one year commitment and meet on different nights of the week. It’s a place where the “why” behind addictions and behavior can finally be uncovered and freedom can be found. We consider this a “heart to heart” experience.

GriefShare Sessions are Tuesday night 6-7:30 in Room 144
GriefShare Sessions are Saturday morning 10:30-Noon Room 144
