RESTORE was founded in 2012 to address the increasing number of unsheltered homeless living on the streets of Contra Costa County launching a home based addiction recovery program.
RESTORE exists to break the bonds of addiction by taking residents through the 12 steps, providing them with the practical life skills and restoring their lives to being contributing members of their communities. RESTORE works hard to reunite families that have been broken by addiction.
Today Restore operates three homes: two for men, and one for mothers and children, as well as, a homeless outreach providing meals and program awareness.
THE TWELVE STEPS OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS
Restore is committed to following the below 12 steps within their recovery program.
- We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
- Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
- Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
- Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
- Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
- Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
- Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
- Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
- Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
- Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
- Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
- Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
