Personal Issues Recovery

Personal Issues Recovery


  • Celebrate Recovery meets weekly in San Rafael.

    "The Bible clearly states 'all have sinned.' It is my nature to sin, and it is yours too. None of us are untainted. Because of sin, we’ve all hurt ourselves, we’ve all hurt other people, and others have hurt us. You’ve undoubtedly heard the expression that “time heals all wounds.” Unfortunately, it isn’t true. Frequently people still carry hurts from 30 or 40 years ago. The truth is – time often makes things worse. What we need is a biblical and balanced program to help people overcome their hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Celebrate Recovery is that program. Based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory, our recovery program is unique and more effective in helping people change than anything else I’ve seen or heard of."

    - Rick Warren, Saddleback Church
