Recovery Support - Celebrate Recovery Locations
Where can I get help when life hurts? How can I overcome these burdens? Why can’t I control myself? How can I break out of this addiction? Who cares about my problems? Celebrate Recovery seeks to answer these questions not with theory but with life changes! Celebrate Recovery is a fellowship of people committed to being a safe place where people can be honest about real problems - real hurts, habits, and hang-ups - through God’s love and truth. Together we are experiencing freedom and new life through the power of Jesus Christ.
