Christian 12 Step Recovery in the Bay Area.How Celebrate Recovery Works-

Celebrate Recovery is a Christian 12-step recovery program open to anyone who is battling any type of addiction, habit, struggle, or hurt.  As soon as you walk through our doors, you’ll be greeted by one of our leaders, who will give you all of the materials you’ll need for the meeting. We start each meeting with a time of uplifting and inspiring music to set the tone. Our perspective is forward looking. While we all must recognize our past actions, Celebrate Recovery does not dwell on the past but focuses on the future, one where we have everlasting freedom from our burdens.

After the music, there is a message which is based on proven life-changing principles that address our attitudes and habits. Next, we break out into small groups to further discuss and apply what we’ve learned with others who are struggling with the same issues.

Small groups allow the opportunity to share personal thoughts and feelings, give and receive support as well as learn specific attitudes and behaviors to successfully overcome your challenges and struggles in a safe setting. We respect the privacy of one another, so what’s shared does not go beyond those in the group. And, each group is lead by someone who has participated in the program, so the group leader understands what you’re going through. While we acknowledge taking personal responsibility as part to the recovery progress, you are not in this alone – you have the support of your group, the group leader, a personal sponsor, and the almighty power of God in whom nothing is impossible!

There are three categories of small groups at Celebrate Recovery:


This group is for anyone who is (addicted to) dependent on something such as drugs, alcohol, sex, food, anger, gambling, depression, finances, etc. If you find yourself unable to decide when or where or how much of a particular habit you will indulge in, you are probably struggling with some sort of addiction, or dependency issue.


This group is for people in relationships who feel responsible to help or “save” the other person (typically a “dependent” described above). So, you could be married to someone dealing with anger/rage, a parent to someone addicted to drugs or a close friend to someone who can’t stop gambling. As a result, you might struggle with issues of forgiveness, blame or damaged self-esteem. Recognizing that feelings, attitudes and behaviors differ between men and women, we have a male and female groups.


This is a group of open sharing for those not already in one of the groups listed above.


At Celebrate Recovery, we are completely committed to your successful recovery
from whatever hurts and burdens you. 

Make a decision today to make a positive and everlasting change for the better.
