I do prefer a Catholic based recovery program. I have been in RU but that is mostly through Baptist Churches. I really didn’t have problems there, but they don’t follow any Catholic doctrine. I am a cradle Catholic; left the church for several years after marrying a lax Protestant. Yes, spirituality is something we addicts lack. We need to humble ourselves and accept that God is in charge. The very big hole in me needs filled with accepting God’s love and guidance, not an addiction. Sorry I live clear across the country in West Virginia, but I am sure California has or will have groups. Starting one isn’t that hard. The group gets it’s strength from all participants. A person is needed to keep things organized and on topic. Good luck, Kathy K.
