Who is it for?

The Recovery Course is a free course for men and women who are struggling with addictions that are causing significant problems in their life, who want to invest in their road to recovery. The course has proved itself effective in helping people with a broad range of addictions such as: drugs; alcohol; pornography; sex; gambling; self-harming; over-eating or other related compulsive behaviours.

Many have found it a good place to start their recovery.  Also equally effective for those who have been working on recovery for years but would like to take a fresh look at the steps from a Christian perspective. While it does offer a Christian perspective it has been of value to people of all faiths and none.

What is the purpose of the course and what is it based on?

The primary purpose of the Recovery Course is to provide practical insight and support to men and women on the path to freedom from the grip of addiction. It is based on the 12 Step Programme used for 75 years by Alcoholics Anonymous and many other 12 step programmes, and incorporates teaching and wisdom from the Bible.

How is the course structured?

The course consists of 16 evening sessions which build on each other, working though the 12 steps.

The sessions are well structured and include: a talk to introduce a topic and insights from other addicts.  This is followed by small group time – course guides will be given to help with further personal reflection.
