Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered program with foundations firmly established in Biblical truth. The 12 Steps with accompanying Scriptures and the 8 Principles based on the Beatitudes offer participants a clear path of salvation and discipleship; bringing hope, freedom, sobriety, healing, and the opportunity to give back one day at a time through our one and only true Higher Power, Jesus Christ.  The 12 Steps and the 8 Principles work seamlessly together, tying historical recovery to timeless Biblical teaching. 


In a desire to protect the integrity of the broader ministry, Celebrate Recovery®  requires that if you use the Celebrate Recovery®  name that the DNA is an irreducible minimum of your program.

The DNA of Celebrate Recovery is non-negotiable because of two pertinent facts:

1. The DNA revolves around the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

2. The Bible and God’s Word are at the very core of everything we do in Celebrate Recovery.

The DNA of Celebrate Recovery is all about pointing us back to the Beatitudes; Jesus’ instructions on how to live a good, productive life. By following the DNA, groups will start safe and remain safe.
