From Feb. 12-18, the Rock Church recognizes children struggling in silence during Children of Alcoholics week. As their parents and families suffer from their addiction, the Rock Church joins the effort to provide pervasive hope and help families in San Diego and beyond.
Rock Recovery is a Christian 12-Step ministry of the Rock Church. The ministry is a Christ-centered, co-ed support group that uses small group interaction, scripture, and twelve step principles, for those familiar with the bondage and destruction of addiction.
"About 15 months ago, my alcoholism caught up with me and my life became unmanageable. My father died of this illness about 12 years ago. As long as I can remember he was deep in his alcoholism and he never understood a way out. Today I understand," said 46-year-old, Rock Recovery participant, Tom.
The reality is there are 26.8 million children living with parents that are alcoholics in the United States; mroe than 11 million are under the age of 18. Statistically, children of alcoholics are four times more likely than children that do not have parents that are alcoholics develop alcoholism. Even now, 18 percent, almost one in five adult Americans, have lived with an alcoholic while growing up.*
Rock Recovery is one of many organizations that provide hope by reaching out to people who have experienced the destruction of addiction through co-ed support groups that are based in scripture.
The Rock Church has directly and indirectly helped thousands of people in San Diego area through ministry efforts and their program is nationally recognized.
