Celebrate Recovery

What is Celebrate Recovery? Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered 12 step recovery program at Oakdale Church in Montgomery County, Maryland. Created at Saddleback Church, the Celebrate Recovery program includes anonymous recovery meetings, recovery lessons, share groups, step study groups, recovery testimonies, and chip nights.

Looking for a local recovery meeting near you? Based on the words of Jesus, Celebrate Recovery at Oakdale Church helps people find freedom from anxiety, depression, sexual addiction, porn addiction, drug and alcohol abuse, food issues, grief, relationship issues, past abuse, anger, shame, codependency, compulsive behaviors and all other issues making life unmanageable. Join us to find freedom from your hurts, habits, and hang-ups!

  • Stay connected with encouragement and CR announcements

The CR guidelines are:

 Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts, feelings, and actions. Please limit your sharing to 3-5 minutes.


There is NO cross talk please. Cross talk is when two people engage in a dialogue during the meeting. Each person sharing is free to express feelings without interruptions. Interruptions also include doing other activities (eating, looking at phone, etc.) and not providing eye contact while members are sharing.


We are here to support one another. We will not attempt to “fix” one another.


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.


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

Celebration Place for Kids

Will be closing as of 8/24/2023

if you have childcare needs, please reach out in advance to

A ministry for children from K-5th grade whose parents attend the Celebrate Recovery program every Thursday from 7-9 PM.

Celebration Place is designed to equip kids with practical coping techniques, effective strategies, and Christ-centered values to help them overcome the cycle of dysfunction in their families and learn to express their emotions and feelings in healthy ways.

Every Thursday night children have a time of worship, participate in fun games, and listen to a Christ-centered lesson on how to depend on Jesus to heal their hurts.

The Celebration Place program mirrors Celebrate Recovery's teaching schedule and curriculum plan, so while adults explore topics that bring healing and wholeness, their kids are discovering the same truths in age-appropriate and fun ways!

Infants-5th graders, welcome. We also have a homework club for middle schoolers. If you have any questions, contact Mary Kay Isaacs,
