Recovery & Support

Hope Church hosts and sponsors a number of recovery and support groups in Memphis to help you navigate the challenges of life. If you have questions about recovery and support groups, feel free to call or contact us. You do not need to give your name in order to speak with someone.

NOTE: Many of these groups are not affiliated with the church, but are highly regarded in our community for their long-standing history as sources of help and support.You do not need to be a Hope member or attend Hope Church in order to take part in these groups. They are open to anyone in the community. In fact, most people who attend these meetings are not affiliated with our church. With the exception of the cost of materials, there are no fees for most groups.

Band of Brothers

Unless otherwise noted, registration is not required. While no one can guarantee absolute confidentiality, every group places a very high priority on protecting your identity and your privacy. You are likely to hear the phrase, "Whom you see here, what you hear here, when you leave here, let it stay here." What you’ll experience at a support group will vary from group to group, but several elements are common to most groups, especially those that practice the twelve steps.

These common elements include:

1. The freedom to reveal your true thoughts, feelings and circumstances without condemnation.

2. Connecting with others who have “been there, done that” and can relate to your situation and talk about their experience, strength and hope.

3. The opportunity to find support, healing and encouragement as you deal with life’s challenges.
