This spring, the International Christian Recovery Coalition will continue its educational efforts to tell the recovery world about the "God is" option that exists and has always existed in Alcoholics Anonymous and recovery fellowships--whether they be Christian, 12-Step, or secular. Recovery today seeks and seems to attract suffering alcoholics and addicts who are at the mercy of whatever recovery therapy they happen to find, someone recommends, or courts and counselors require. And today, more often than not, that recovery effort asks little more than a desire to quit drinking or using, and attendance at meetings.

The days of Christian recovery organizations, professionals, and altruistic help from fellow afflicted souls who look to God for help have been in a diminishing stance for a couple of decades. At the same time, there has been a revival, an immense new growth among believers to go back to the highly-successful First Century "Christianity fellowship" techniques that the Akron A.A. pioneers adopted and victoriously applied from A.A.'s earliest days in 1935.

Dick B. and Ken B. have devoted 23 years now to researching and publicizing that "God is" option that can and will produce recovery and healing from alcoholism and addiction, if sought. Other options exist in abundance, but those who are Christians or at least believe in God deserve to know what God can and will do for them today if and when He is sought.

There are three major tools Dick and Ken will use in 2013 to illuminate the Divine help approach. The first is the personal stories of the A.A. pioneers that occupied the greatest number of pages in the first edition of A.A.'s basic text. The second involves the summary of the original Christian fellowship already underlined in much of A.A.'s own Conference-approved literature. The third is the message that all AAs and recovery work ought to carry.
