Celebrate Recovery Alton is a 12-step Biblically-based program for anyone struggling with any hurt, hang-up, or habit. Those attending have found hope and help to overcome issues of anger, alcoholism, guilt and shame, financial loss, divorce, gambling, dysfunctional families, sexual abuse, drug abuse, grief, eating disorders, and many more. Celebrate Recovery Alton is a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church.

Celebrate Recovery was launched over 3 years ago with 2021 active meeting sites that exceed 35,000 community locations. Not included in these 35,000-plus locations is an active and growing network of State Prison and County Jails that offer Celebrate Recovery.

As we continue o see the growing epidemic of drug and alcohol usage across our country, I encourage your support of this valuable resource. Celebrate Recovery Alton is also a great resource for the family and friends of those in need of intervention.

Do you know someone that would benefit from meeting new friends, while receiving both support and accountability in their life journey?
