Overcomers Outreach support groups are sharing groups, not therapy groups. There are no trained leaders, only lay persons who facilitate the group and who have been walking their own 12-Step recovery journey for at least a year. The groups are led by different individuals each week, utilizing a simple meeting format, preamble and Bible study materials contained in our FREED guideline booklet (see Resource Price List under “Resources”).
Overcomers Outreach groups utilize the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (in their original form) along with the Scriptures (where we believe the Steps originated). The groups speak freely about our higher power in the person of Jesus Christ. Honest sharing (on a first-name basis) is honored and encouraged, with no cross talk allowed. The meetings are wrapped up with mutual sentence prayers. The group usually evolves into a close family relationship where the truth about each person is finally admitted, and where God’s power can freely heal, even some of the most impossible cases!
Groups to Suit Your Need!
- Overcomers Outreach
OO groups – where family members (18 years of age and over) are welcome to address a variety of problems surrounding addiction, compulsion and codependency. Many of these groups are co-ed but there are also men only and women only groups in some areas. The groups use the FREED book as a guideline.
