Spreading the word about recovery had become a challenge for all of us during this unprecedented time. The team of 300 volunteers at CTBR have come together to meet the changing need. Came to Believe Recovery is going virtual! We are taking the time tested program of the founders of AA that we’ve been presenting at weekend retreats for 50 years, and taking it virtual. Yes, you can take the steps in a weekend. Take steps 1-9 once, and then 10,11, and 12 for the rest of your life. And you too can be RECOVERED.

The Virtual Retreat kicks off Friday, at 6:45pm PST. This first session is 2.5-hours and covers Steps 1-3, includes a welcome, the history, and virtual breakout rooms for questions and discussions.

In the second session is 3.5-hours & you’ll experience Steps 4-9 as taught by AA founders — Saturday, from 9am-12:30pm PST.

The last session is 2-hours Sunday, starting at 9am-11am PST , and you’ll be going through Steps 10-12, “Living in The GO!”

Join us at 2pm PST on Saturday for the keynote speaker!

This is How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism

Came to Believe retreats have been going on around the world for over 50 years! Today, there are nearly 40 retreats worldwide spreading the life-changing message of recovery that our founders intended. And not just to alcoholics, but to addicts and family members as well. The program works for any addiction or brokenness. Register online today for this three-day interactive video presentation. Experience the fourth dimension of existence our Big Book talks about, and have the obsession relieved… Step 7 really works. You can receive all the promises if you thoroughly follow their path; the founder’s path.

This was written in 1938:  “We shall be with you in the fellowship of the Spirit and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the road of happy destiny. May God Bless you and keep you until then.”

So here in 2020, our road happens to be something never dreamed about 80 years ago. We will meet you on the virtual path and we might not trudge so much as ZOOM – and be “rocketed into the fourth dimension of existence of which we had not even dreamed.”
