Celebrate Recovery Small Groups:

Provide you a safe place to share your experiences, strengths and hopes with others who are going through the “Principles” in a Christ-Centered recovery. Provide you a leader who has gone through a similar hurt, hang-up on habit that will facilitate the group as it focuses on a particular Step each week. The leader will also keep Celebrate Recovery’s “FIVE GUIDELINES.” Provide you with the opportunity to find an accountability partner or sponsor. Encourage you to attend other recovery meetings held throughout the week, if available.


Celebrate Recovery Small Groups will not…

Attempt to offer any professional clinical advice. Our leaders are not counselors, or allow its members to attempt to fix one another.

Small Group Guidelines

To ensure that Celebrate Recovery is a safe place, the following five guidelines are read and followed at the start of every small group meeting:

  1. Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings.  Limit your sharing to three to five minutes.
  2. There is NO cross talk.  Cross talk is when two individuals engage in conversation excluding all others.  Each person is free to express his or her feelings without interruptions.
  3. We are here to support one another, not “fix” another.
  4. Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements.  What is shared in the group stays in the group.  The only exception is when someone threatens to injure themselves or others.
  5. Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered recovery group.


Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program that helps us deal with life’s “hurts, hang-ups, and habits.” Healing takes place among a network of brothers and/or sisters, making a small group experience an essential part of Celebrate Recovery. We have small groups for adults and all work through the same 12-step curriculum, based on the 8 recovery principles found in the Beatitudes.


Celebrate Recovery exists to see life-change in the people of Anaheim, and the surrounding North Orange County area.


Celebrate Recovery is a Biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual Words of Jesus taken from Matthew chapter 5. We believe in providing a place for the broken to come and face the pain in their lives. Because of this, Eastside Christian Church passionately supports Celebrate Recovery and the practical principles that designed to help others find authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.

Step Studies

Step-study groups are held during the week, and meetings last 2 hours. Men and women, separated by gender, work through “The Journey Begins Participant’s Guide Vol 1-4” (based on the 8 principles and their Biblical comparison from Matthew 5), while following the “5 Guidelines for Sharing” during meetings. Groups meet weekly for about 12-14 months under the gentle and loving guidance of an experienced facilitator and/or co-leader to let Christ help them reveal and deal with issues in their lives that have become heavy baggage.

Whatever the hurt, hang-up, or habit might be, people honestly working through the material in these step study groups are able to form strong bonds and support teams, find accountability partners, sponsors and friends through sharing and caring.

To find out if there is an open step study, come visit us on Friday or contact us here.
