Celebrate Recovery Small Group Guidlines

  1. Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts and feelings.

  2. There is NO cross-talk. Cross-talk is when two people engage in conversation excluding all others. Each person is free to express his or her feelings without interruptions. 

  3. We are here to support one another, not “fix” one another. This keeps us focused on our own issues. 

  4. Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements. What is shared in the group stays in the group. The only exception is when someone threatens to injure themselves or others. 

  5. Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered recovery group. 

Additional Guidelines for Virtual Groups – Participants are asked to:

  • ·      Use video as well as audio

  • ·      Join from a private space where others cannot listen in

  • ·      Use headphones for privacy
