There can be a lot of fear in starting. Fear of being vulnerable, fear of the time commitment, fear of the people in there not being safe, but it has been totally worth it for me.
On my first night at CR, I can expect…
To be greeted and welcomed.
To be accepted right where I am without judgement or criticism.
There is an orientation that will explain what CR is, how to get plugged in, and most importantly, how we stay safe.
At CR you will find:
Compassion, Hope and Community.
Authenticity and Vulnerability.
Joy and Encouragement.
You’ll recognize your value as you develop a community where you will be embraced and supported.
The nice thing about doing recovery with the people you are closest to is that there isn’t the expectation that you have to be perfect.
The first time I went to CR I was scared to death. I didn’t know anybody and I didn’t want anybody to see me. I was afraid I would be shamed, but I was accepted, and I kept going back.
Celebrate Recovery is based on a set of basic principles, steps, and guidelines.
