Promoting awareness and standards for Steps To Active Recovery

Across the UK, hundreds of thousands of people are affected by addiction, compulsive behaviour and habits such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, food and social media.

This is a community problem that requires a community approach

STAR is building a network of trained communities, comprising of churches and organisations that offer a comprehensive range of services that will enable people to be set free and live life to the full.

Free Online Recovery Course

The STAR Life Course is a free 12 week online course, supporting people with any addictive habit or behaviour.

The interactive course focuses on the importance of the mind, body & spirit in a person’s recovery journey.

Based on the 12 Step model whilst drawing in biblical principles and wellness including: teaching; identification; activation and steps to active life recovery.

Run by a team of people who have had first hand recovery experience who journey with participants to improve their quality of life. Find out more at the link below.
