RECOVERY GROUP INFORMATION

If you are new to recovery we encourage you to attend "Newcomers 101"

 

Celebrate Recovery Small Groups CAN:

Celebrate Recovery Small Groups Will NOT:

Small Group Guidelines

  1. Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings. Limit your sharing to 3–5 minutes.
  2. There will be NO cross-talk. Cross-talk is when two individuals engage in conversation excluding all others. Each person is free to express his or her feelings without interruptions.
  3. We are here to support one another, not “fix” one another.
  4. Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements. What is shared in the group stays in the group. The only exception is when someone threatens to injure themselves or others.
  5. Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered recovery group.

Chemically Dependent

Individual groups for men and women
This group is for anyone who has ever thought they have a problem with drinking alcohol or using drugs. You may have tried to quit on your own and found some level of sobriety, but freedom from the compulsion to use your drug of choice has been elusive. At Celebrate Recovery, we know that a relationship with Jesus Christ as our Higher Power can set us free.
* Please be advised if anyone threatens to hurt themselves or others, their Small Group Leader has the responsibility to report it to a Celebrate Recovery Ministry Leader.

Co-Dependency

Individual groups for men and women
This group is for anyone struggling with the compulsion to rescue or take care of others, the compulsion to control or manipulate others, having difficulty setting boundaries, or recognizing their own worth. Members in this group learn to express their own needs and wants in a healthy way.

Physical/Emotional and/or Sexual Abuse

Individual group for men and women
This group is for anyone who has endured past physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse. Recovery includes healing from the traumas done to us at some time in our past, as well as healing from the influence these past experiences continue to have on our lives.

Adult Children of Family Dysfunction

This group is for anyone who grew up in a family or home where one or more caregivers struggled with addiction, compulsions, co-dependency or any other unhealthy behaviors. Recovery includes healing from the damaged emotions and belief systems from our childhood.

Sexual Addiction

Individual groups for men and women
Support group for those seeking recovery from lust and compulsive sexual behaviors. This group provides fellowship, is a safe place to share our struggles, pain, and victories, and helps to establish accountability and mutual support among the group members throughout the week.

Food and Body Image Issues

This group is for anyone who struggle with food and/or body issues that may result in compulsive behaviors such as overeating, binging and/or purging, starvation, excessive exercise, or obsession with food, looks, and/or body weight/size. Recovery includes transferring worship from food and body to God, and replacing lies and unhealthy distorted beliefs about God, food and body, with truth and healthy God-driven self-worth and esteem.

Love and Relationship Addiction

This group deals with Love and Relationship Addiction, and provides a safe place to deal with the depression, isolation, lack of trust, and the unhealthy use of love and relationships as a means of achieving worth.

Co-Dependent Women in a Relationship with a Sexually Addicted Man 

Sexual addiction and its causes are largely unknown to most people. This group not only provides support, but also helps women seek an understanding of their own personal issues. Co-Dependents can then confront their own denial and behavior while gaining insight and understanding of their spouse’s sexual addiction. 

Recovery from Anger 

Individual groups for men and women 
These recovery groups are for men and women who find that anger is their first response to problems of any size. The anger may be very evident as rage, or less obvious in terms of withdrawal and isolation. These groups focus on managing a God-given emotion in constructive ways.
