Four local churches are offering Bible-based 12-step recovery programs. Christ The King Lutheran, Fallbrook Presbyterian, Riverview Church and The Waters Church all have groups which are tailored to help people recover from addictions, habits and life’s traumas.
Two alcoholic men, Bill W. and Dr. Bob, started the Alcoholics Anonymous program in the mid-1930s as a support, first for each other, and then for others. The program was initially a Christian-based program but has since become more secularized.
These four Fallbrook churches have taken the recovery program idea back to its Biblical beginnings and are offering help groups for hurting people.
The churches offer somewhat different programs, which will be briefly described in this article. The threads that connect the groups are the Biblical emphasis as well as the focus on the need for fellowship of kindred spirits.
