Celebrate Recovery is a required course for all residents of Restored Hope Ministries.

Small Group

Celebrate Recovery uses group talk sessions as part of the program. To ensure that Celebrate Recovery is a safe place, the following five guidelines are followed in all small group sessions:

  1. Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings. Limit your sharing to three to five minutes.
  2. Eliminate cross talk.  Cross talk is when two individuals engage in conversation excluding all others.  Each person is free to express his or her feelings without interruptions but to the group.
  3. We are here to support one another, not "fix" another.
  4. Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements.  What you shared in the group stays in the group.  The only exception is when someone threatens to injure themselves or others.
  5. Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered recovery group.

Job Preparedness

Restored Hope Ministries helps prepare the resident for re-entry into society. Part of that re-entry is job preparedness. Restored Hope Ministries will help the resident with the creation of a resume, will help with a mock job interview, will help with the does and doesn’t of job interviewing, and finding a job.
