Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. What does that mean? Substance abuse, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, co-dependency, domestic violence, perfectionism, guilt, anger, loss, worrying, gambling, control issues, boundary issues, pornography, sexual addiction, alcohol & drugs, emotional & physical abuse, childhood trauma, and more…

Celebrate Recovery is based on the actual words of Jesus, rather than psychological theory. Twenty years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 17,000 people at Saddleback, attracting over 70% of its members from outside the church. Eighty-five percent of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers.

Celebrate Recovery is now in over 20,000 churches worldwide! For more information about the Celebrate Recovery please visit the international website.

Celebrate Recovery is not intended to replace Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or any other support group. Nor is it a substitute for treatment centers or professional counseling. The focus of Celebrate Recovery is to provide a safe group environment where recovering people can gather together and share their struggles and victories. We encourage all people struggling with hurts, hang-ups, and habits, and you are welcome at Celebrate Recovery!

Step Studies

Beginning Monday, June 4th, there will be a Men’s Step Study and a Women’s Step Study.

A Step Study is a personal journey through each of the 12 steps in a confidential group led by a facilitator who has completed a study. The group is open to newcomers for the first three weeks while going through the first three steps. Once the group reaches the fourth step, the group is closed for the duration of meetings. A Step Study is a long-term commitment for the members of the group. There are guidelines to follow to keep the group’s trust.

The Step Study groups will meet on Mondays at 6:30pm at The Ridge. If you would like to receive more information about the Step Studies, please contact LifeCare@chestnutridgechurch.com.
