Probably the best place I know of for a church to start getting an understanding of the need for Recovery Ministry in every church. With that being said, this is not a recipe for starting such a ministry. There are plenty of resources out there for that purpose and some really good ones but again this book is to help open the eyes of those of us in the church to the need that is all around us.
I would recommend your church start right here. Have a book study around this work and discover what it is God would have you do in your part of the world in Recovery. Studies show that 30 percent of Americans are in some kind of active addiction and the different addictions are many. One of my friends who is in recovery says that 30 percent is a very low estimate and I would agree. There is a mission field in every community based on this population alone.
Great book, great resource, great place to start.
