United in Pursuit of a Common Cause
The following are Christ-centered recovery programs and meetings. God & The 12 Steps is not in competition with these established recovery groups, programs and meetings. Our intentions are to work in harmony toward the same goal of helping people find freedom from addictions through a loving, all-powerful God.
If the recovery ministries mentioned below do not have a group or meeting in your area, please check with your local Bible-based churches. If you'd like to start a God & The 12 Steps Group, please click here for details. Remember, the journey of recovery is best enjoyed in the fellowship of other believers. (See Hebrews 10:24-25, Matthew 18:19-20, Psalm 133:1-3, Proverbs 15:22, and Proverbs 24:6.)

The easy-to-follow structure allows attendees to participate during the meeting and share at the end of each meeting.
