At Recovery at IBC, we’re real people learning how to apply the 12 Steps as a powerful model in our lives for alleviating emotional pain, stress, and control and for seeking practical spiritual development in Christ. Most people associate “Recovery” with alcoholics, drug addicts, or porn addicts which is right. There’s more though, things like perfectionism, pride, overeating, shopping, and anger, these are all ways that we cope with our own pain, fears, and denial. Recovery meets on Thursday nights.
What a few people had to say about Recovery:
“I always thought recovery was just for drug addicts or alcoholics. It was great to find others who struggle with other things in life who understood me.”
“I wasn't sure if recovery was really a safe place to let go of secrets that had kept me so sick, so I gave a fake name for the first few times. I now know that we are serious when we say, ‘Whom you see here, what you hear here, when you leave here, let it stay here.’”
Recovery meets 52 weeks a years in the Next Gen space on Thursday nights.
