Placing Faith in Christ to Guide Recovery

Weekly Christian 12-Step Program

Prayer, worship and embracing the teachings of Christ are essential to staying on the path of recovery. Leaning on our Christian faith decreases the chance of relapse, restores our spirit and allows us to foster a deep connection with ourselves, our loved ones and God.

Held every Wednesday from 9:30-12:30, AARC’s Christian 12-Step Recovery Program brings together those in recovery to study scripture, reflect on 12-step devotions and connect with others in a supportive and nurturing environment. Group members experience personal and spiritual growth that provides the foundation for a new life in health and sobriety. Incorporating our Christian 12-Step Program’s faith-based principles into the curriculum, the weekly group focuses on family intervention strategies, relapse prevention, self-help techniques and life skills. Meetings begin with prayer, worship and devotion. Group members draw inspiration from selected scripture and devotions that encourage open and honest dialogue as they reflect on the teachings of Christ to guide their recovery. Those in recovery have the opportunity to expand their support network and share personal experiences in a safe space while learning the skills necessary to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

What are the 12-Steps?

The 12-step model is a fundamental part of the recovery process. These steps provide a framework and offer guidance to help individuals achieve sobriety and support one another in their journey.

  • Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—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 Him.
  • 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 Him 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 Him, praying only for knowledge of His 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 alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
