When 12-Steps Leave You Empty
Have you ever felt tired of going to your 12-step recovery group? You're not alone. Over the last twenty years, I have worked with many people who have attended a variety of 12-step programs. Again and again, I hear the same story, "At first it was really helping me but after awhile it just felt empty. Going to the meetings was depressing and I wasn't leaving with vision for my future." If you've ever felt the same feelings, maybe there's nothing wrong with you after all. Maybe you're finally awake enough to seek a better way. With that in mind, let me introduce you to, L3 Recover, a community where you can focus on your future instead of your past.
L3 Is Not a Program
There is no staircase of prepackaged steps to climb to freedom. There are no coins or ribbons to achieve. We'll never ask you to identify yourself with your label of past struggles. There's no wagon to fall off because we don't have one for you to ride. Instead, we invite you into a community committed to living an interdependent lifestyle of mutual encouragement, accountability, and authentic love.
Areas We Offer Recovery and Support
We are not professional counselors or psychologists. We are a faith-based recovery community offering support for all aspects of recovery including; drug and alcohol abuse, pornography addiction, anger, grief, depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, self-harm, domestic violence, divorce, abandonment, abortion recovery, and unspeakable traumas.
We Promote Interdependence Because Victory Comes In Community
“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NASB
The L3 Lifestyle
L1: Love God
Fear is a major contributor to feelings of grief, shame, anger, and bitterness which lead to all types of bondages. When we love God and allow Him to love us, we are freed from fear and in the process we experience freedom of mind, body, and spirit.
L2: Love People
Jesus modeled love for others as the easy yoke, the life of rest, peace, joy, and fulfillment. As we invest our lives in loving others God rewards us by pouring authentic love back into our lives.
L3: Live Like We Mean It
Talk is cheap, broken promises hurt ourselves and others, and a false life is always filled with emptiness and pain. Through Jesus, we can do all things. His death and resurrection has made it possible for us to live the L3 life of authentic love.
In 1 Corinthians 13, the Bible tells what love is and what it means to “live like we mean it”:
