Is Celebrate Recovery for YOU? Celebrate Recovery is for ANYONE who is honest about life's hurts, hang-ups, and habits, and who is willing and open to experience healing and change. We believe in walking through life together as we follow Jesus, not telling others how or where they should walk. We are all still recovering from hurt and pain, our current and past addictions are no longer hidden, but are front and center, and you will probably easily identify the hang-ups in each of us. However, you will also identify the most authentic, transparent, genuine, and compassionate people anywhere. Thankfully our identity is not found in our struggles; rather, it is found in our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
