Most people are familiar with the classic 12 step programme of A.A. and other groups. This program is unlike any recovery programme you may have seen, with seven features that make it unique including:
- Based on eight principles from the Bible which are God’s road to recovery, wholeness, growth, and spiritual maturity.
- This recovery program is forward-looking. Rather than wallowing in the past, or dredging up and rehearsing painful memories over and over, Celebrate Recovery focuses on the future. Regardless of what has already happened, the solution is to start making wise choices now and depend on Christ’s power to help you make those changes.
- Celebrate Recovery emphasizes personal responsibility. Instead of playing the “accuse and excuse” game of victimization, this programme helps people face up to their own poor choices and deal with what they can do something about. We cannot control all that happens to us, but we can control how we respond to everything. When we stop wasting time fixing the blame, we have more energy to fix the problem. When you stop hiding your own faults and stop hurling accusations at others, then the healing power of Christ can begin working in your mind, will, and emotions.
- This recovery programme addresses all types of habits, hurts and hang-ups. Some recovery programmes deal only with alcohol or drugs or another single problem. But Celebrate Recovery is a “large umbrella” programme under which a limitless number of issues can be dealt with. Lives will be changed in dramatic ways: hopeless marriages restored, people set free from all kinds of addictions, habits, hang-ups, and hurts as they allow God to bring healing into your life.
