Celebrate Recovery

In 1991 Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people. Celebrate Recovery is now in over 35,000 churches worldwide. To date over 5 million individuals have completed a Step Study.

This support group and recovery program is designed for individuals (and their families) who are dealing with a hurt, habit or addiction, including drugs, alcohol, codependency, overeating, stress, worrying, sex, obsessive compulsiveness, anger, depression, and more.

Meetings are held on Mondays from 6:30–9 p.m. in Room 318 on the 3rd Floor. Each week a teaching or testimony is followed by group discussion.

Celebrate Recovery involves 8 principles from the beatitudes of the New Testament, and the 12 steps and their biblical comparisons. This program is distinctly Christian, uncompromisingly biblical, and proven to work. It has brought people together to discover a new level of care, acceptance, trust and grace, and for those who seek to mature spiritually, making better decisions that will help them become more Christ-like in character.

Be a part of this proven program that takes a Biblical approach to overcoming your hurts, habits and hang-ups!

"Welcome to the 'Road to Recovery.' You are in for an exciting and amazing journey as you take the hand of the true and only Higher Power, Jesus Christ, and walk with Him toward healing and serenity."— Pastor John Baker founder of Celebrate Recovery
