For years, the recovery movement has worked tirelessly to bring hope and healing to those battling addictions. Today, there are thousands upon thousands of different types of 12-step and recovery groups that meet around the world in churches and community centers. Celebrate Recovery, a significant Christian-based program, is now in over 20,000 churches worldwide.

At the heart of this success are countless caregivers who are committed to walking with men and women on this journey of transformation, as well as supporting family members who are impacted. An ongoing challenge, however, has been gaining access to current, faith-based training to raise up the next generation of facilitators and group leaders who serve the Body of Christ in this critical arena, until now.

The Twelve Laws of Life Recovery

These irrefutable laws go beyond the 12-Steps and introduce some new words and profoundly biblical concepts that will shed new light on the distinctives of Christian recovery. They also point to the evidence of recovery: the fruit of adhering to these requirements, that without them, recovery is incomplete.
