We meet together weekly in a safe and confidential setting. We work through a 12 step recovery programme which, together with the 8 principles, enables us to develop and deepen a relationship with Jesus. We have meaningful and challenging teachings. Each participant is encouraged to work through each step using weekly sheets or workbooks at their own pace in their own time.
In small, single sex groups we discuss questions from the workbooks or the teaching and examine how it affects us personally. This is a supportive and caring environment which allows us to open up as individuals and to make changes through developing with Jesus and each other new ways to live. This process brings peace, joy and freedom from our hurts, habits and hang-ups.

The website says:
Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. 20 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 17000 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 19,000 churches worldwide!
