We are delighted that two, effective, recovery organizations in different parts of the state of Pennsylvania have now acquired and will present our new foundational class--a startup class--for those in recovery who need and want God's help and want to know how it all started.
The class, of course, is "Introductory Foundations for Christian Recovery" www.dickb.com/IFCR-Class.shtml. The price has been very substantially reduced to $99.95 and $199.95 for individuals and groups, respectively. And is now much more affordable to any people, groups, fellowships, programs, counselors, and agencies that want to start that patients and/or clients and/or newcomers with accurately researched and presented facts on how the Christian recovery movement really began in the 1800's and moved from its New England base to the first A.A. program in Akron.
The two new presenting groups are:
The Oasis Recovery Center of Western Pennsylvania. And the news came from its Vice Chairman Karen A. Plavan, Ph.D., Professor of Chemical Dependency and Counseling at University of Pennsylvania, and also Adjunct Professor at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
The Council on Chemical Abuse, 601 Penn Street, Suite 600, Reading, Pennsylvania. This news came from Drew Eisenhauer, M.Ed., CPS.
Both of these leaders and presenters have long been supporters of our efforts to research and disseminate the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible played in the origins, history, founding, original program, and astonishing successes of the Akron A.A. Christian Fellowship founded by Bill W. and Dr. Bob on June 10, 1935. Also the role that they can play today for those who want God's help in recovery and will go to any length to receive it and pass it along to others.
Again, the class is fully described at www.dickb.com/IFCR-Class.shtml
