More than two decades ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery® with only 43 people. Today, it has helped nearly 20,000 people at Saddleback alone, with over 70% of its members from outside the church. Of the people that go through the program, 80% stay with the church and nearly 40% of those serve as church volunteers.

*Certain groups of people with mental illness (eg. males, individuals of lower socioeconomic status, military veterans and people with more general medical illnesses) are at increased risk of abusing drugs such as marijuana, opiates, cocaine and other stimulants, and alcohol. Recent scientific studies have suggested that nearly one-third of people with all mental illnesses and approximately one-half of people with severe mental illnesses (including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia) also experience substance abuse. Conversely, more than one-third of all alcohol abusers and more than one-half of all drug abusers are also battling mental illness. (source: NAMI)
