Recovery Day Ottawa


Join with us for the official Recovery Day Ottawa celebration in the National Capital at Ottawa City Hall.

During the month of September, Canadians are gathering to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where all individuals will have access to the support they need when seeking help.

We believe by speaking out as people living in recovery, or as family, friends and supporters of those affected by addiction, we save lives.

Through our personal stories and shared experience, we hope to inspire others to join us. Together, we demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.

Celebrate Recovery

(CR) is a Christ-centred, purpose-driven recovery program grounded in the teachings of the Beatitudes. The 12 steps and their Biblical comparisons are presented as steps toward overcoming hurts, hangups and habits living forward-looking and joy-filled lives in relationship with God, ourselves and others. The fundamental difference between Celebrate Recovery and traditional 12-step programs is that we identify with our solution, Jesus Christ instead of the ever-spanning list of issues in our lives. We meet every Monday night, 52 weeks of the year at Woodvale Pentecostal Church.
