Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery ministry that provides a road to freedom from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates real peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger relationship with God and others.
Based on eight principles taken from the beatitudes, this program enhances a traditional 12-step approach with a sound biblical foundation providing strong spiritual growth. Through the program, we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power, Jesus Christ.

THE ROAD TO RECOVERY
Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and my life is unmanageable.
“Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor.” Matthew 5:3
Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover.
“Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
“Happy are the meek.” Matthew 5:5
STEPS 4 & 5
Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.
“Happy are the pure in heart.” Matthew 5:8
STEPS 6 & 7
Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life, and humbly ask Him to remove all my character defects.
“Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires.” Matthew 5:6
STEPS 8 & 9
Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others except when to do so would harm them or others.
“Happy are the merciful.” Matthew 5:7
“Happy are the peacemakers.” Matthew 5:9
STEPS 10 & 11
Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and gain the power to follow His will.
Yield myself to God to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words.
“Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.” Matthew 5:10
