Recovery Ministries

It is the mission of the recovery ministry to facilitate a return to wholeness from the delusion of brokenness, to love from the delusion of separation, and to power from the delusion of powerlessness.
Dr Ras Smith, former Interim Minister at UCOH speaks with Carol Wilke from Mile Hi Church about Recovery. Check out this powerful message.

The Recovery Ministry is led by staff and volunteers with multiple years in recovery, so there is an understanding of the sense of helplessness that one may initially feel, as well as the aliveness and joy that comes from being recovered.

At UCOH, we understand that recovery is not just about a particular identifying condition or addiction. It is awakening from a dream state in which we erroneously believe that we can make ourselves happy from the outside in.

Many in recovery have been relieved and overjoyed to find at UCOH, a spiritual home in which the beliefs in a Higher Power are so in alignment with their own beliefs.

UCOH provides a home for recovery groups including Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, and Stress Coping Recovery.  In the near future, other recovery groups are scheduled to be added, in the areas of Spirituality in Recovery.


Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:30 pm

A 12-step support fellowship for relatives and friends of alcoholics. Al-Anon offers understanding help; support to families and friends of problem drinkers. Our program is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based upon the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of Service.

Many who come to Al-Anon are in despair, feeling hopeless, unable to believe that things can ever change. We want our lives to be different, but nothing we have done has brought about change. We all come to Al-Anon because we want and need help.

In Al-Anon, members share their own experiences, strength, and hope with each other. You will meet others who share your feelings and frustrations, if not your exact situation. We come together to learn a better way of life, and to find happiness whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Sundays, 6:00 – 7:30pm 

Each week a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous will share in a general way what they were like, what happened and what they are like today. The meeting is an Open Meeting, however, one of the most important aspects of A.A. recovery is one alcoholic relating to another alcoholic.  Therefore, only alcoholics participate at this meeting.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
