THE RECOVERY COURSE
The Recovery Course is a Christian charity established to reach those suffering from the effects of addictions of all kinds, including alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, food, social media and other compulsive habits. The charity does this through enabling, equipping and encouraging churches to run the Recovery Course. The course is suitable for people of faith or no faith; the key requirement for a successful outcome is that course attendees have a desire to overcome their addiction.
Our desire is to see people suffering from the pain and grip of addiction restored to wholeness and a new sense of purpose in life.
Our vision for the Recovery Course is to see as many people as possible set free from their addiction.
Our mission is to facilitate recovery from addiction through a 12 step step course based on biblical principles, thereby giving hope and freedom to people of any or no faith.
What we do
We offer free training and support to churches and Christian-based organisations running or wishing to run the Recovery Course throughout the UK and beyond.
We maintain the Recovery Course resources which are offered at no cost to churches and Christian-based organisations wishing to run the Recovery Course.
We host an annual Recovery Course Conference for representatives from churches and Christian-based organisations either running the course or interested in doing so. This is an opportunity to meet other course facilitators, and where best practice is discussed through seminars, and information provided on how best to operate the Recovery Course.
The Recovery Course team are actively involved in running Recovery Courses, as well as supporting new courses with training, leading and speaking. The team also work alongside a number of other addiction-focused charities. Our trustees often speak to the media on issues surrounding addiction, and our CEO speaks regularly to mainstream media specifically on issues of gambling addiction, and has supported national campaigns aiming to include safety-mechanisms within the gambling industry.
