Christian Support Groups
The best referrals to groups will come from someone you know who is already
a member of a group. If you do not know of any church-based ministries, however, don't
hesitate to start by phoning the larger congregations in your community. Remember that a
church which you would not consider attending regularly may nevertheless have a support
group ministry which is well suited to your needs.

Most support groups are not affiliated with a larger
network but are grass-roots ministries in local churches. Other groups, however, choose to
identify themselves with larger coalitions of groups. Each of these networks has
distinctive approaches to recovery. Some are based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics
Anoymous, some use adapted versions of the Twelve Steps, and others use different
strategies. We urge you to contact these groups individually for more information about
their ministry and approach to recovery.
