Five Values from, and Reasons for, Your Participation
Increased resources: Your own knowledge, program, and service to others will be substantially enhanced by the additional, comprehensive resources you will have in your own location.
Increased referral service to the addicted and otherwise-afflicted: In addition to conducting your own program, you can help others in your community find Christian and other resources such as assessment, intervention, detox, counseling, treatment, sober-living, homeless, public aid, job and educational help, and veterans assistance—things you may not now have or do.
Increased ability to refer to other centers which can provide help in an area you don’t serve: Already, there are many “Christian Recovery Resource Centers” established in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom—with more to come. You will know about these.
Increased networking ability with us and with other “Christian Recovery Resource Centers”: And this means by phone, email, and other means of communication; as well as by personal meetings, conferences, and seminars with experienced Christian leaders and workers in the recovery arena you will get to know and can trust.
New emphasis on overcoming the present Christian recovery barriers: Our resources that document the Christian origins of the recovery movement, the Christian upbringing of A.A.’s cofounders, and the highly-successful original Akron A.A. “Christian fellowship” recovery program; that provide a positive refutation of the propriety of nonsense gods and phony spirituality prevalent in recovery today; and that provide an ability to reach newcomers and their helpers with success information emanating from their own turf.
