Be a Part of Making a Change

Most addictions treatment centres use the Twelve Steps as part of their programming; and the primary focus of the Twelve Steps is for the recovering addict or alcoholic to develop a relationship with the God of their understanding. This relationship, and pier support becomes the foundation that makes recovery possible.

Concept of God

Because our modern age mindset advocates self-autonomy, the concept of God is  baffling for most, and to the many in treatment who asked, “What’s up with this God thing?”;

When asked

“What’s up with this God thing?

We Answered

Well, God above all is a loving caring ‘Higher Power’ that’s greater than us, and greater than the disease of addiction. God is the power that will help us with our feelings of powerlessness, hopelessness, and helplessness.

Would you like a copy of the Bible so you can read about Him?

By far, the predominant response

Sure. I remember going to Sunday School, or Church with my grandparents; I really liked it. I even went to Bible camp. But then I got older and stopped going.

We Asked

Well, could this be a good time to get reacquainted?

Response

OK. I’ll give it a try, but last time I picked up a Bible I started at the beginning, and couldn’t get through it.

We Continued

Well, you’ll find it easier to start by reading the New Testament. The Psalms and Proverbs can also be a good place to begin. Don’t worry too much about interpretation, just try to listen with your heart.

Bibles

The Bibles were never returned. It’s the kind of reading that fills a longing people have, but can’t describe, exactly. People who are in emotional, physical, mental and spiritual crisis find the Word of God to be a fountain of wisdom and comfort.

CHARM proposes to do this in the following ways:

by providing faith-based recovery programs to individuals recovering from alcoholism and addiction

by providing education programs and related support for family members of the afflicted;

by offering support programs and services to addictions support workers, and the spiritual stewards of those in recovery and their families; and

to educate youth to make an informed choices about the effects of addiction, marijuana and vaping.

Our Story

Guided by the Holy Spirit and supported by many loving, caring individuals in a variety of ways, on 12 July 2021, the Christian Addictions Recovery Ministry became a Charitable Society.

Our primary purpose is to “…return the addictions recovery conversation to its Biblical roots…” .

Alone we go faster, together we go farther

Your time, talent, and treasure are genuinely needed and sincerely appreciated.

“…in him you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
