We Want You to Be

Let’s end brokenness from addiction throughout the world.

We are a group of men and women who have recovered from a variety of addictions including drugs and alcohol. We are committed to helping others break free from their addictions through retreats, workshops and other events that provide the tools and directions for powerful spiritual awakening.

WE CONTINUE THE LEGACY OF RECOVERY GROUNDED IN THE SPIRITUAL AWAKENING & EXPERIENCE THAT RESULT FROM THE 12 STEPS, AS PRACTICED BY THE FOUNDERS OF A.A., BEGINNING IN THE 1930s AND CONTINUING TO THE PRESENT

Creating life-long

Spiritual Awakening

Came to Believe Recovery strives to create and promote opportunities for life-changing spiritual experiences for individuals and families suffering from all forms of addiction. We provide the essential spiritual tools needed to thrive by sharing our experience, strength and hope through our own stories of how we came to believe.

Driven by the original Spiritual principles found in the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, we connect people with the Source of spiritual and physical freedom to discover a new way of living.

With a Powerful

Network

The Came to Believe Recovery retreats and programs welcome both those addicted AND family members and loved ones. We believe that we got sick together and we can get well together.  We let people discover how thousands of people have “recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body.”
