Celebrate Recovery


Celebrate Recovery started in 1991 at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. We are part of a movement that is bringing the healing power of Jesus Christ to the hurting and broken by working through Celebrate Recovery’s Step Studies, The Journey Begins, and The Journey Continues. To date, over five million individuals have completed a Step Study.


Celebrate Recovery is a ministry to assist those who want to gain victory over alcohol, drugs, pornography, gambling, and food. In Christ, the true Higher Power, is where healing and recovery begins!


When We Meet

We gather every Friday from 7 to 9 PM in the Family Room (across from the Sanctuary), 3800 South Fairview Street, Santa Ana, CA 92704. 


What to Expect

Before service, all are welcome to gather in the Courtyard for snacks, refreshments, and fellowship. Service begins with praise and worship. We then celebrate milestones with Recovery Chips. The Eight Principles and their corresponding Beatitudes, or the 12 Steps and their biblical comparisons, are read. This is followed by teaching or testimony. We end with a closing prayer and a closing song before dismissing to small groups.


What Celebrate Recovery Offers

Celebrate Recovery is a 12-step program and can sign court cards. 

The battles we face do not have to be battled alone. We are here to grow in the Lord together as He brings us through the recovery and healing process. 

A celebration of milestones by the giving of Celebrate Recovery Chips and recognition as we obtain victory in our journey! Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. Romans 12:15

Celebrate Recovery and Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa resources are available.


What Celebrate Recovery Teaches

Eight Principles based on the Beatitudes and 12 Steps and their biblical comparisons. Celebrate Recovery material is based on God’s Word, the Bible.
