HARBOR ROCK RECOVERY
Harbor Rock Recovery (HRR) is dedicated to helping addicts and alcoholics (both men and women) transition from an addictive/compulsive lifestyle to the Life of freedom Jesus Christ offers. “Life abundantly” (John 10:10)
The Life that Jesus Christ freely offers
FREEDOM “It is for freedom Christ came to set us FREE” (Galatians 5:1)

Acceptance, Encouragement & Unity: (John 4 & 8/ Hebrew 10:24-25)

Grace: God’s gift that saves, transforms, and never ends (Ephesians 2:8)
SPECIAL NOTE: Many of us speak the “12 step language” and HRR enjoys this missional strategy to reveal and reflect the GREAT love of God through faith in:
The 12 Steps of Recovery: (From the program of Alcoholics Anonymous)
1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
