We all struggle with things. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 Step recovery program that helps anyone find hope and healing to overcome life’s hurt, pain, or addiction of any kind. CR also uses the 8 recovery principles drawn from the Beatitudes. CR is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling your life.  Regardless of the problem you are facing- financial, emotional, spiritual, marital, relational, or chemical- Celebrate Recovery has worked in thousands of lives and can work in yours as well. Everyone is welcome and no registration is required.

Teenagers often struggle with their own issues, therefore, The Landing was developed.  This group is for ages 12-18 who may need guidance in finding freedom from life’s hurts and habits.  Like the adult’s CR, The Landing can help foster hope and joy as teens participate in lessons which break the cycle of dysfunction, while fostering healthy conversation, engaging in vibrant worship, and building true friendships.  
 
The Landing meets separately from the adults every Monday night.

Celebrate Recovery started in 1991 at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. At that time, the church was meeting at a high school gymnasium. John Baker wrote Pastor Rick Warren the “now-famous, concise, 13-page, single-spaced” letter outlining the vision God had given John for Celebrate Recovery. After reading John’s letter, Pastor Rick said, “Great, John — go do it!”

The first night 43 people attended, and Celebrate Recovery was born. Beginning with only four Open Share Groups — Men’s and Women’s Chemical Dependency and Men’s and Women’s Codependency — the ministry has grown to over 14 groups today. Over 27,000 people have gone through the program at Saddleback Church. Many of them are now serving in Celebrate Recovery and the Church. Celebrate Recovery is the number one outreach ministry at Saddleback Church, with over 70 percent of its members now coming from outside the church.

The first 10 years were the birth stage of Celebrate Recovery, and now God is calling us to take it to the world. There are now 35,000 Celebrate Recovery churches around the world, and that number continues to grow. We are part of a movement that is bringing the healing power of Jesus Christ to the hurting and broken through working Celebrate Recovery’s Step Studies, The Journey Begins, and The Journey Continues. To date, over 5 million individuals have completed a Step Study.

In addition, Celebrate Recovery is not just growing in churches, but in recovery houses, rescue missions, universities, and prisons around the world. New Mexico was the first state to adopt Celebrate Recovery into its state prison system and now has Celebrate Recovery pods in all its state prisons. In August 2004, Celebrate Recovery was announced as California’s state-approved substance abuse program for prisons. This is an exciting and growing outreach opportunity for every Celebrate Recovery.

We are a part of something much larger than one church’s Celebrate Recovery. We are part of a movement that God is blessing.
