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.
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.
