It's hard to say what it is like because it would be my opinion. If you went you might have a completely different opinion. Go to a meeting. They'll be very nice if you want to talk or leave you alone and let you listen if you don't want to talk. Then you can see what you think.

The one I went to was a cross between church and AA. We started out by singing a song or 2, then recited the steps, had a speaker then broke into groups. (Males one group and females another group.) They were all very nice and welcoming.

I credit CR for getting me through some of my darkest days. It varies a lot depending on how large the church and program are. There is a large service where there are songs, a testimony or a lesson. From there, small groups break out according to your issue. Men w/men, women w/women, according to what you are there for. I was there for support for codependency. There is usually a chemical dependency and a sort of etc. category as well.

Expect them to welcome you, and not to pressure you. Many have a meal you can go to, and a dessert after where you can gather and talk, etc.

I have found my biggest supporters at CR, it is a wonderful program. I encourage anyone who needs some help to reach out to CR.
