The Addiction Recovery Program is a 12-step program that incorporates gospel principles and aids in recovery and healing. Participants often meet in support groups to share their experiences and lift each other as they work through their personal recovery with the principles taught in the program guide.
The Addiction Recovery Program Guide to Recovery and Healing is for individuals struggling with addiction. It is a workbook that outlines the 12 steps of recovery. These steps are gospel principles that help individuals overcome addiction through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. The guide, written by members who have been through the journey of recovery themselves, contains an explanation of principles, practical suggestions for applying those principles, and “understanding” questions relating to each step.
The individual struggling with addiction's guide is available as an MP3, PDF, or printed copy in more than 20 languages and can help individuals working through recovery as well as leaders counseling with members in recovery.
Recovery group meetings are free and confidential. They assist individuals and families who desire to overcome addictive behavior and find a better life through gospel fellowship. In these meetings, participants learn to draw on the power of God to help them achieve freedom from their addiction and to help them enjoy the blessings of Church participation and temple covenants.
There are recovery meetings for individuals who struggle, as well as support meetings for family or friends of those who struggle. Meetings are focused on either general addiction or on pornography and sexual addiction. Meetings are 60 to 90 minutes long, ongoing, and are held year-round. No referral is necessary. Youth 16 to 18 years of age can come with a parent or guardian. Dress is casual and modest.
