It is the mission of the recovery ministry to facilitate a return to wholeness from the delusion of brokenness, to love from the delusion of separation, and to power from the delusion of powerlessness.
The Recovery Ministry is led by staff and volunteers with multiple years in recovery, so there is an understanding of the sense of helplessness that one may initially feel, as well as the aliveness and joy that comes from being recovered.
At UCOH, we understand that recovery is not just about a particular identifying condition or addiction. It is awakening from a dream state in which we erroneously believe that we can make ourselves happy from the outside in.
Many in recovery have been relieved and overjoyed to find at UCOH, a spiritual home in which the beliefs in a Higher Power are so in alignment with their own beliefs.
UCOH provides a home for recovery groups including Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Marijuana Anonymous, Over Eaters Anonymous, PTSD, Stress Coping Recovery, SLAA and People’s Anonymous. In the near future, other recovery groups are scheduled to be added, in the areas of Spirituality in Recovery.
Tuesdays, 7:30 PM
Thursdays, 7:30 PM
Saturdays, 9:00 AM
A 12-step support fellowship for relatives and friends of alcoholics. Al-Anon offers understanding help; support to families and friends of problem drinkers. Our program is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based upon the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts of Service.
Many who come to Al-Anon are in despair, feeling hopeless, unable to believe that things can ever change. We want our lives to be different, but nothing we have done has brought about change. We all come to Al-Anon because we want and need help.
In Al-Anon, members share their own experience, strength, and hope with each other. You will meet others who share your feelings and frustrations, if not your exact situation. We come together to learn a better way of life, to find happiness whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.
Unity Church of the Hills hosts an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting every Saturday. This is a separate meeting from our weekly Al-Anon meetings. Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
Fridays, 6:30pm to 7:30pm
A Marijuana Anonymous group will begin meeting at the Church on Friday evenings at 6:30 p.m., beginning July 6th. Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction. Our primary purpose is to stay free of marijuana and to help the marijuana addict who still suffers achieve the same freedom. We can do this by practicing our suggested twelve steps of recovery and by being guided as a group by our twelve traditions. Open discussion meeting–all are welcome!
Wednesdays, 6:30pm to 7:30pm
