Welcome to Journey Groups

The Journey to Wholeness program was developed by the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, along with our partners, in order to provide a safe environment for individuals recovering from addictions.  These “Journey Groups” follow the 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, and 12 Concepts as modified from Alcoholics Anonymous.

The Journey Group offers the following:

  • An atmosphere of Christian love and acceptance, where people meet on a weekly basis and become openly honest with each other
  • A “safe place” where anonymity and confidentiality are respected
  • An opportunity to share experiences, strengths, and hopes without “cross-talk” and judgmentalism
  • Encouragement to earnestly seek God to do for them what they cannot do for themselves
  • Most important, they are invited to recognize that Jesus Christ is the Highest Power
  • Recovery and freedom from obsessive thoughts, compulsive actions, habitual behaviors, and spiritual separation
  • Workbook material to aid you on your Journey to Wholeness

We invite you to join a Journey Group if you can describe yourself as any of the following:

  • I have a desire to stay clean and sober
  • I hope to rise above the pain and turmoil engendered by the addiction of a loved one
  • I wish to break the bondage of compulsive behavior
  • I am clean and sober (required of all attendees)
  • I have a family member or loved one who is suffering
  • I am living with the struggles of emotional or mental health challenges, such as depression, bipolar, mood disorders, or ADHD
  • I am powerless over people, situations, and things in the mental, physical, spiritual, and/or social areas of my life
