Celebrate Recovery to launch meeting Jan. 6

The purpose of this program is to allow anyone to become free from life’s hurts, hang ups and habits. By working through the recovery principles found in the Beatitudes with Jesus Christ as your higher power, you can and will change.

This is a non-denominational Christ centered 12-step program. This program is forward looking. Rather than wallowing in the past, or dredging up painful memories, Celebrate Recovery focuses on the future.

This program emphasizes personal responsibility. Anonymity and confidentiality are required. This program is approved for all drug court participants.

Please join us in celebrating recovery. We will meet every Friday night at 6:30 p.m. starting Jan. 6 at the First Southern Baptist Church 5th and C St.

For more information please see celebraterecovery.com or contact Mike Fontaine 775-303-4292.0
