Celebrate Recovery®, also known as “CR,” is a Christ-centered ministry approach to recovery. It was founded by Pastors John Baker and Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church, and is designed as a program to help those struggling with “hurts, habits, and hang-ups,” including but not limited to drug and alcohol addictions, sex addiction, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, as well as those who have been sexually abused. It is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. The program helps to show the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process.
For this special confidential process to be effective long-term, people must be true to themselves about where they are in their lives that often many people will not or do not do.
