What Is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, habits, and hang-ups.  It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. 25 years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people.  It’s designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-up by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process.


Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor.

Matthew 5:3

Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5:4

Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.

Matthew 5:10
