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?”;
“What’s up with this God thing?
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.
Well, could this be a good time to get reacquainted?
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.
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.
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.
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.”
