RU PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Local support system. Proven curriculum. Weekly meetings. Programs for kids. Leaders who really care. At RU Recovery Program our only goal is to see people’s lives transformed.
Headquartered in Rockford, IL RU now has more than 900 chapters around the world helping people break the chains of addiction.
The Ypsilanti Chapter
Our local chapter meets each Friday at 7:00 p.m. at the Southside Baptist Tabernacle of Ypsilanti, illinois where stories of victory are shared, groups and individuals are personally counseled from God’s Word, and lessons are taught on overcoming temptation. Nurseries and programs for children allow RU to minister to the entire family.
What We Do
Stories of Victory
Are you tired of hearing the “war stories” of people who have no real freedom in their life? If so, try RU! Every week, our students share how God has changed their lives through real-life, relevant stories. This time of encouraging testimonies will get your weekend started off just right. View some amazing success stories.
Every RU class ends with a 30-minute teaching lesson that will expose valuable Bible principles that are integral to your recovery process.
We have one of the best comprehensive discipleship curriculum in America.
We will not only encourage you and help you on your road too recovery, but we will also motivate you to do so. We have an award system that acknowledges accomplishment and rewards participation in the program and curriculum.
Free Personal Counseling
We offer free group and individual spiritual counseling on a wide variety of topics from addiction, to marriage, finances, family, and many other areas. You will have a leader, a helper, a director, and even the pastor available as your own personal counselors during times of urgent need.
We have a children’s program for Ages 4 to 12 and a teens’ program for Ages 13 to 17. We also have nursery care available for children Ages 3 and younger.
Weekly Fellowship Time
RU offers its own “Happy Hour” fellowship time at the conclusion of Friday meetings where refreshments and snacks are usually served. In addition, our Sunday and mid-week meetings usually offer multiple opportunities to fellowship with your fellow students and leaders.
Local Church Support
The local church is God’s support group. The local church helps to meet the spiritual needs of all people, and when the spiritual needs of people are met then other needs fall in line and become easier to manage.
