The Chemical Recovery Ministry (CR) helps those who have abused drugs or alcohol or who have been chemically addicted to recover and remain sober through the power of God — creating a spirit of humility, a deeper acceptance of God’s grace, and a deeper understanding of God’s love.
Our definition of addiction comes from the Bible. In Romans 7:14 – 20, Paul writes, “l do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do… For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do – this I keep on doing”. We accept and understand that without Gods Power, we are truly powerless over our addictions.
We believe that addiction affects a person physically, psychologically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually and that Gods plan for the addict is one of Total Recovery. God does not want to heal part of the addict but instead bring a whole healing to a life of misery and despair. We believe that recovery is not a quick fix but instead we approach recovery as a lifelong commitment. We believe that a person who is truly enslaved to alcohol and/or other drugs can only insure his or her continued sobriety by total abstinence, one day at a time for the rest of their life.
Chemical Recovery meetings are open to everyone. The only requirement is a desire to get well.
