Celebrate Recovery, which has had at least one prior incarnation in Logan County, is a 12-step program, much like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or Overeaters Anonymous except it is founded in the Christian religion, Pastor Doehrmann explained.
“The primary piece is that this is a Christ-centered program,” he said. “We refer to Jesus not to a higher power.”
The group also welcomes individuals struggling with any “habit, hangup or hurt” but is otherwise like many other sober support groups, he said.
“Support-wise this group is really caring and the accountability and grace is amazing.” Meetings begin with music and singing, followed by a video lesson on one of the 12 steps and the eight principles that make up the program. The whole group then prays together before dividing up into smaller groups of men and women who share their own personal experiences with drugs or negative behaviors.
