Below are some of the topics people have attended Celebrate Recovery for…
CODEPENDENCY for Women
To the codependent woman, control (or the lack of it) is central to every aspect of life. This group is for women struggling with the compulsion to rescue and take care of others. These women have difficulty setting boundaries and recognizing their own worth. Participants learn to express their needs and wants in healthy ways.
COSA – Codependent Women in a Relationship with a Sexually Addicted Man for Women
Sexual addiction and its causes are largely unknown to most people. Many of us blame ourselves for the behavior of sexual addicts, telling ourselves, “If only I were more” sexual, attractive, thinner, etc. Sometimes we participate in activities that leave us feeling abused. This group provides support, and helps women understand their own issues. Participants can then confront their own denial and behavior while gaining insight into their spouse’s behavior and their sexual addiction.
EATING DISORDERS for Women
For women who struggle with food, eating, and body image. Disorders involving food and eating are emotional issues. Some of us eat too little; some of us eat too much. We use food or control to numb our real feelings, and we develop an unrealistic body image. Members of this group will explore how to lose their obsession with food by focusing on God’s plan for recovery and life.
FREEDOM FROM ANGER for Men
Anger has many faces, all of them destructive. This group is for those who find that anger is their first response to problems of any size. It can significantly damage our behaviors and attitudes, destroying important and intimate relationships. The focus of this group is on allowing Jesus to help us learn to use our emotions according to God’s design and change how we relate to others.
CHEMICALLY DEPENDENT for Men and Women
If you find that you cannot quit drinking or using entirely, even when you honestly want to, you are probably an alcoholic and/or addict. If that is the case, you may be suffering from a problem that only a spiritual solution will conquer. The focus of this group is on tapping into God’s power that enables you to live one day at a time without using any mood- or mind-altering substances.
HURTS, HABITS, AND HANG-UPS for Men and Women
Hurts are emotional reactions to another person’s behavior or to a disturbing situation. Hang-ups are negative attitudes we use to cope with people or adversity. This group is a place to share with others who have similar hurts, habits and hang-ups. Participants learn to break free from feelings and behaviors that bind them, and celebrate God’s healing.
LOVE AND RELATIONSHIP ADDICTION for Women
This provides a safe place to deal with depression, isolation, lack of trust, and the unhealthy use of love and relationships as a way to achieve worth. The goal is to heal through an intimate relationship with Christ, to gain a rebirth of the heart, and to fill that heart with a love for God, others, and self.
SEXUAL ADDICTION for Men
Lust begins as an overpowering desire for pleasurable relief from inner pain, emptiness, or insecurity. This group is for men seeking recovery from lust and compulsive sexual behaviors. The group provides fellowship and is a safe place to share struggles, pain, and victories. Participants will support each other while being held accountable for their actions.
