|What is ACAC?
Alcoholics for Christ Adult Children (ACAC) is a support group for adults who have grown up in an alcoholic family system or any other dysfunctional system.
Who may participate?
Anyone who identifies with the issues and is willing to deal with them (anyone open to change).
How do the support groups work?
Each week the participants of ACAC groups come together in an atmosphere of freedom, safety, love, hope, and honesty. The 12 steps of Alcoholics for Christ are applied as well as selected scriptures and the "problem list" (found in pamphlet) to help identify issues.
What direction is given?
Group leaders are trained to lead discussion groups and give direction on a limited level. In cases where the individual is dealing with deeper issues and change is difficult, we recommend individual counseling with a Christian professional, pastor, and/or church leader, in conjunction with weekly meetings.
What are the priorities of ACAC?
Our purpose in the discussion group is to become more like Christ and to increase in fellowship with God. We do this by becoming open and transparent with God, ourselves, and others, and by allowing the Lord to "brick by brick" remove the walls of rejection, hurt, mistrust, unforgiveness, and anger that have separated us not only from God, but ourselves and others as well.
Truly, God wants us whole, and if we will put into practice the principals set forth in these steps, and open ourselves to God's word and the interaction at the tables, God will heal us and restore us beyond our wildest imagination.
