Description

Christians in Recovery is an Internet ministry. We are a group of recovering Christians dedicated to personal one-on-one sharing of faith, strength and hope as we live each day in recovery. We work to regain and maintain balance and order in our lives through active discussion of the 12 Steps, the Bible, and experiences in our own recovery from abuse, family dysfunction, depression, anxiety, grief, relationships and/or addictions of alcohol, drugs, food, pornography, sexual addiction, etc

Many of the people we serve fear professional or social repercussions if they seek help for their problems. Some are going through pain and suffering because they are too afraid or ashamed to admit that they are codependent, or abused by their spouse, or same sex attracted or drinking too much or too fat or too thin. Others live in rural areas or countries where no recovery resources exist. These people have been ignored by traditional recovery groups and ministries.

Those most in need have not been reached until now. Christians In Recovery (CIR) was formed because of this need. The Internet provides a level of anonymity and security to individuals who are too afraid or ashamed of their addictive/dysfunctional behavior to approach conventional ministries and recovery groups. Christians in Recovery gives hope, healing and fellowship to those in need of recovery.

Our Vision
It is the vision of the Board and Supporting Members of CIR to continue to use the latest technology, in addition to conventional means, to reach those who would normally not seek help--to catch those who fall through the cracks-- and to further spread Christian hope, healing and fellowship to those in need of recovery. Our vision is not just recovery but to go well beyond recovery so people can fully discover, explore and magnify all possibilities God intends for them as individuals.
