Recovery is a personal and spiritual journey with many possibilities. It can mean a process of moving beyond the mental health system. It can also mean: and improved quality of life by furthering one's knowledge and education, being a volunteer or being employed, living independently or having a living arrangement that works for you. Recovery can also mean having goals and a sense of purpose, supporting others as we support ourselves, making life happen instead of life happening to us, generating something with ourselves and others each day, getting unstuck, or not staying stuck. Recovery is trying new ways of handling old problems, making choices for yourself that really work instead of choices that work against you, pursuing interests and expressing talents, enjoying community life and community involvement, being grounded in reality as much as possible, creating a balance in our lives, filling in what is missing in our lives in healthy life-affirming ways, one day at a time. Recovery can also mean overcoming character defects by working a program. Recovery is for anyone who is willing.

PREAMBLE: (John 8:12)
Tending to express oneself in forceful speech, we wish to say that any person capable of honestly facing his/her problems and addictions in the light of God can recover provided he/she does not close his/her mind to the Holy Spirit. We find that no one need have difficulties with the 12-Step Bible based Spiritual Program. Willingness, honesty and open mindedness are the essentials of recovery. With these keys we are well on our way to a road to a happy destiny.
MOTTO: (Hebrews 8:10-13)
To have a healing relationship with God along with ourselves and being comfortable in our own skin. This will allow the fellowship of the Spirit to come into our lives, sharing experiences of faith, hope and encouragement to one another in brotherly/sisterly love unconditionally. The new covenant established by God through Jesus Christ is exciting. God would write His laws on His people's hearts giving them new desire to obey him. They would have a special close relationship with God and new relationship with other believers. God would forgive their past sins and character defects. In Christ, We can receive spiritual and emotional healing and have all the help necessary for a successful recovery.
PURPOSE: (Galatians 5:16-21)
To have the ingredients for successful living in Christ. Be more appreciative and sympathetic of others. Learn quality living and be able to share with others the goodness of God, where He has brought you from. Letting go of old compulsive behaviors, attitudes, emotional pain, isolation, dysfunctional family relationships.

~ROMANS 8:1-8; 17 NIV~
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh,[b] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.[c] And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
