Why Pay Dues?

In recovery groups and 12 Step programs, you are asked to drop a dollar or what you can afford in the basket to support the group. In CIR, for only 50¢ per day, you get all of these benefits! Click

Dues cost less than a cup of coffee per day. In 12 Step programs and churches people drop a few dollars in the basket to fund the organizations and they also donate. Those who are using the services of these groups and ministries pay for them.

CIR is the only full featured Christian recovery community on the Internet. We respond to your feedback immediately and always within 12 hours.

Our expenses are great. As a membership organization, the members each help to carry the burden of the cost to provide this ministry. It is good stewardship to pay for the very resources one uses. Those who choose to become members of CIR pay dues. Scholarships are given to those experiencing difficult times. No-one goes without help. Everyone who comes to CIR is served regardless of ability to pay.

In the past year Christians in Recovery® helped over 450,000 people at no cost to them.

Over 1,000 pages of information and resources are available on our web sites to anyone FREE of CHARGE.

People who are in AA or similar organizations drop a few dollars in the basket at each meeting they attend to help cover costs. Many go to several meetings a day. CIR costs only 50 cents per day (less than the cost of a cup of coffee or soda pop). That is very reasonable considering all of the information, chats, resources, tools and more that are at your disposal.
