UR (Unique Recovery) Pathway brings a fresh approach to recovery support groups. Free to attend, this recovery program was designed to celebrate the various pathways of recovery. We understand that recovery is unique to every individual and aim to create a space of community and support for those seeking healing from any mental illness (AMI), substance use disorder (SUD), and/or trauma. This includes but is not exclusive to: alcohol and drug addictions, bi-polar disorder, co-dependency, compulsive behaviors, depression, eating disorders, financial dysfunction and gambling, high anxiety, and sex addiction.

UR Pathway gives participants an opportunity to fellowship while offering mutual support and gaining a better understanding of themselves and others. Utilizing an eight (8) phase approach inspired by the Eight (8) Dimensions of Wellness by SAMHSA and serving as an alternative to 12 Step Groups, our meetings help individuals to tap into their intrinsic power to change their lives for the better.

UR Pathway is offered to adults, ages 18+ who live with AMI, SUD, and/or trauma.

Meetings will be hosted weekly starting Winter 2019.

A group session of UR Pathway consist of:

  1. Breaking Bread
    The primary purpose of Breaking Bread is to offer recoverees an opportunity to build healthy friendships. Breaking Bread at the beginning of each session assists recoverees in transitioning from the busyness of the day into UR Pathway.

  2. Guided Group Meditation
    Meditation helps recoverees to disconnect from outside distractions and focus on the present moment.

  3. Pulse Check
    During Pulse Check, facilitators present the recovery principles and recoverees share their current circumstances and feelings.

  4. Small Group
    Using the journal page, we help children identify their feelings and the reason why they feel the way they do. As children learn to identify and talk about their feelings they become better able to connect with others, reducing feelings of isolation. Small groups give children a chance to share their prayer requests and to pray for each other.

  5. Centers
    In our centers, children learn how to apply the principles taught during the main lesson. A Center might be a game, activity, or craft to help children experience a main point of the lesson. This keeps the night fun and the children engaged.

  6. Closing
    In the closing leaders reiterate the main points of the lesson and familiarizes children with the Serenity Prayer by reciting a version of it.

  1. Teaching Time
    Our Landing leaders will present biblical truths and recovery principles to our students in a way that they can engage with, participate in, and apply to their lives.

  2. Small Group
    The Landing uses the same five Small Group Guidelines that adult Celebrate Recovery uses in Open Share small groups and walks through a series of questions that pertain to that night’s teaching time. Small Group gives our students a time to process and personalize the recovery principles that they are learning.

  3. Fellowship Time
    This time serves as a place for students and leaders to connect, build relationships, and continue processing the lesson after the service.
