How do I know Celebrate Recovery will work?

If you have never attended a Celebrate Recovery group before, you might be wondering, “How do I know Celebrate Recovery even works?” Why even invest time and commitment into something that might not be effective?

The good news is that we have seen people find freedom from all kinds of hurts, hang-ups and habits through Celebrate Recovery.

But how does it work?

Celebrate Recovery works because of the healing power of Jesus Christ. The 8 Recovery Principles are based on the words of Jesus found in Matthew chapter 5. Jesus is the foundation of Celebrate Recovery. Healing comes through having a relationship with him.

Celebrate Recovery uses groups to help us share our feelings, pain, experiences and growth in ways we may have never been able to before. As we walk closer with Jesus we find other people who walk alongside us to encourage us and keep us focused on our goal of freedom.

Ok, great, but how do I know it works?

One of the best ways to know something works is to read the reviews. Have you ever looked up a product online and read the reviews to see what other people say about it? These are called testimonials. In Celebrate Recovery, we call them testimonies. Every leader at the local Celebrate Recovery in your area is a testimony to the effectiveness of Celebrate Recovery. No one can lead a Celebrate Recovery group if they haven’t gone through one. They have had their lives changed, and they have seen other lives changed, and this has (caused them) to serve so that more lives can change. If you are thinking of attending Celebrate Recovery and need some proof that your life can change, just look at the leaders! They aren’t perfect, but they have gone through Celebrate Recovery and they are here to help you on your path.
