         Men’s and Women’s Meetings- Most churches will have men’s and women’s meetings where men and women come together and fellowship.  Going to a meeting of the same gender really allows you to share with no distractions. It’s a great time to unleash what’s on your mind and to grow by digging into the Word of God! 

 

         Celebrate Recovery– is a Christ centered recovery program for all types of addiction and hang-ups. Many churches will have these meetings available!

The 12 Steps- help guide you along your recovery and help you understand that God is needed during this path!

■Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addiction – that our lives had become unmanageable.
■Step 2: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
■Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God.
■Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
■Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
■Step 6: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character
■Step 7: Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.
■Step 8: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
■Step 9: Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others
■Step 10: Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
■Step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God’s will for us and the power to carry that out.
■Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
