Celebrate Recovery is a faith-based journey that has helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world find restoration, hope, and healing from life’s hurts, habits, or hang-ups. While some struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, two out of three who attend struggle with other life issues such as: childhood sexual abuse, grief, control issues, gambling, depression, anxiety, pornography, eating disorders, suicidal thoughts, abortion recovery, anger, and much more.


Come just as you are, not as you think you should be.


Celebrate Recovery is open to all members of the community 18 years and older, and you don’t need to be a church-goer to attend. Celebrate Recovery meets every Friday evening at Autumn Ridge Church (3611 Salem Road SW, Rochester, MN 55902).
