Celebrate Recovery Small Groups CAN:

Provide you a safe place to share your experiences, strengths, and hopes with others that are also going through a Christ-centered recovery.

Provide you with a leader who has gone through a similar hurt, hang-up, or habit and who will facilitate the group as it focuses on a particular Step each week.

The leader will also follow Celebrate Recovery’s “Small Group Guidelines”.  See Guidelines under the About Us Menu

Provide you with the opportunity to find an Accountability Partner or a Sponsor.

Newcomer Information

Chemically Dependent

Individual groups for men and women

If you find that you cannot quit drinking or using entirely, even when you honestly want to, or if you have little control over the amount you consume, you are probably an alcoholic and/or an addict. If that is the case, you may be suffering from a problem that only a spiritual solution will conquer.


Individual groups for men and women

This group is for those struggling with the compulsion to rescue and take care of others, have difficulty setting boundaries, or recognizing their own worth. Members in this group learn to express their own needs and wants in healthy ways.

Physical/Emotional and Sexual Abuse

Individual group for women

This group is for those who have endured past physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse. Recovery includes healing from the traumas done to us at sometime in our past, as well as healing from the influence these past experiences continue to have on our lives.

Adult Children of Family Dysfunction

Individual groups for men (formerly Adult Children of Alcoholics)

The family problem of alcoholism made us “co-victims”—those who take on the characteristics of the alcoholic without necessarily ever taking a drink. Choosing to recognize and exit the modeled behaviors of alcoholism is the beginning of recovery for the ACFD.

Sexual Addiction

Individual groups for men and women

Support group for those seeking recovery from lust and compulsive sexual behaviors. This group provides fellowship, is a safe place to share our struggles, pain, and victories, and helps to establish accountability and mutual support among the group members throughout the week.

Eating Disorders and Food Addiction

Individual groups for women

This recovery group’s purpose is to learn a new way of living. The Eating Disorder group addresses Anorexia and Bulimia. The Food Addiction group addresses compulsive overeating and those on the diet roller coaster. We have learned, our tendency is to compulsively try to control food or to be out of control with food. At your own pace, you will learn to trust, to ask for your needs to be met, to say “no” when it is appropriate, to express your feelings, and to hang around when all you want to do is run.

Love and Relationship Addiction

This group deals with Romance and Relationship Addiction only, and provides a safe place to deal with the depression, isolation, lack of trust, and the unhealthy use of love and relationships as a means of achieving worth.

Co-Dependent Women in a Relationship with a Sexually Addicted Man

Sexual addiction and its causes are largely unknown to most people. This group not only provides support, but also helps women seek an understanding of their own personal issues. Co-Dependents can then confront their own denial and behavior while gaining insight and understanding of their spouse’s sexual addiction.

Freedom from Anger

Individual groups for men and women

These recovery groups are for men and women who find that anger is their first response to problems of any size. The anger may be very evident as rage, or less obvious in terms of withdrawal and isolation. These groups focus on managing a God-given emotion in constructive ways.

Financial Recovery

Individual groups for men and women

This group is designed to help you, with God’s power, gain financial freedom from your debts so you can start managing your finances God’s way. In addition, the core hurts, hang-ups, and habits that have caused the financial trouble and stolen the serenity and joy that God has intended, will be overcome.

Please be advised if anyone threatens to hurt themselves or others, their Small Group Leader has the responsibility to report it to a Celebrate Recovery Ministry Leader.
