The Dick B. Address on October 2, 2011

·         The Growing Christian Recovery Movement and the Role ACADC Institute can play

The opportunity for our pervasive, informative, Christian Recovery Movement is now!

International Christian Recovery Coalition is adding daily the participants who, at

            no cost to themselves, are listing themselves in this world-wide fellowship

Conferences, talks, and interchange among Christian recovery leaders of all stripes

            are becoming commonplace – as evidenced at our recent summit conferences

            in Costa Mesa and Brentwood, California where panelists and speakers came

from California, Hawaii, Florida, New Jersey, Texas, South Carolina, and Delaware to share what they do and fellowship with each other.


·         A regular radio, webinar, skype, YouTube, podcast, and other media outreach will

soon enable information interviews of and talks by Christian recovery counselors, clergy, and recovery pastors; leaders of Christian recovery fellowships; owners and directors of Christian recovery treatment programs, interventions, detox facilities, after-care, and sober living programs; Christian chaplains, community resource outreach, prison and re-entry outreach, veterans outreach, codependency outreach, hospital outreach, at-risk populations outreach, homeless outreach, food, clothing, and shelter outreach; experienced and long-clean and sober 12 Step leaders; Bridge organizations; members of the International Christian Recovery Coalition Speakers Bureaus; leaders of libraries, archives, and memorial collections.


·         The newest programs and projects of International Christian Recovery Coalition can and will enhance the Christian Recovery Movement growth. And these include:

Revival of understanding and importance of the Alcoholics Anonymous First Edition;

            the Original Printer’s Manuscript which shows the changes in A.A. of 1939;

            the new Dover Publications reprint of the 1st edition, with all the previously

removed personal stories, the original ideas, and the Dick B. introduction; and

            a work in progress that will soon be a First Edition Sponsor Guide.

More conferences, seminars, and resource materials

Publishing our materials in print-on-demand, electronic, and web-wide forms—materials

such as The Dick B. Christian Recovery Guide and The Dick B. Christian

Recovery Resource Center Handbook

Expansion of the number of participants in the International Christian Recovery Speakers


·         Preparing as many as possible introductions, forewords, and appendices for each Alcoholics Anonymous, substance abuse, treatment, counseling, and Christian recovery history guide book, workbook, text, and article. Our role would be to encourage writers and publishers to begin their recovery items with accurate history of the real origins, principles, and practices of the Christian Recovery Movement and how to apply them today in whatever Christian recovery program or A.A. History work is undertaken.

·         Stressing, encouraging, expanding, and establishing Christian Recovery Resource Centers for entities and individuals world-wide. This so that each and every Christian recovery endeavor is also able to provide or steer alcoholics and addicts to reliable resources incorporating the role of God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in the origins.

The needed expansion of this collaborative effort includes the following: Assessment

and qualification of both affected and afflicted persons; providing comprehensive resource information; Intervention, Counseling, Detox; Christian treatment that includes or refers to detox; counseling, family, children, and co-dependency facilities; Teaching about Christian healing, prayer, forgiveness, guidance, deliverance, Bible study, Quiet Time, Fellowship, Salvation, and the importance of God’s Word; Fellowships, 12 Step Groups, Teen Challenge, Missions, YWAM, Celebrate Recovery, alumni, after-care, and senior fellowships, transitional and sober housing; re-entry help as to veterans, military, and correctional release; abandonment, youth, senior, family, medical, homeless, at risk and chaplaincies; community recovery resources including churches, food, shelter, housing, clothing, medical help, mental health welfare, unemployment, job training, education, wholesome recreation options, wholesome music, theater, teaching, sports, community volunteer, services such as Big Brother, and business or union or trade groups.

·         Holding Renewal Conferences among leaders to discuss and improve: sponsorship,

counseling, treatment; prayer-Bible study-healing-Quiet Time activities; study groups; 12-Step history, A.A. history, and Christian Recovery Movement resources, guides, and programs; Bridge groups and Christ-centered fellowship effectiveness; counselor training and certification, training the trainers, literature resources and recommendations; long-term Christian residential recovery treatment such as CityTeam, Teen Challenge, and similar long-term Christian residential recovery programs.

·         These foregoing suggested efforts—(1) Media Christian Recovery presentations; (2) Christian Recovery Resource Centers and Persons (3) Expansion of International Christian Recovery Coalition participant listings. (4) Enabling us as consultants only to help introduce and write for and with you accurate descriptive forewords and introductions to books, articles, guides, workbooks, and web presentations of your programs; and (5) Renewal conferences and Bureau Speakers who can inform you—can go far in helping the growth, effectiveness, networking, information exchange, and program enhancement of ACADC Institute, Christian counselors, Christian treatment programs, Christian recovery fellowships, and community recovery outreach by Christians.

For further information, assistance, counsel, and resources, please contact my son Ken or myself at 808 276  4945,, and PO Box 837, Kihei, HI 96753-0837

Brief Highlights on the Two California Summit Conferences

Brief Highlights from

The North American Summit Conference Meetings of

the International Christian Recovery Coalition

Saturday, September 17, at The Crossing Church in Costa Mesa, CA &

Saturday, September 24, at Golden Hills Community Church in Brentwood, CA

# 1--The New Emphasis on the 1939 First Edition of Alcoholics Anonymous:

Hazelden Foundation--one of the Sponsors of the Summit Conference Meetings--provided for display The Book That Started It All: The Original Working Manuscript of Alcoholics Anonymous, a beautifully-bound, uniquely-valuable book; and we were able to explain its early A.A. role.

Dover Publications--another of the Sponsors of the Summit Conference Meetings--just released its new title, Alcoholics Anonymous: The Original 1939 Edition, on September 15, 2011. This reprint of the first edition of the Big Book contains all of the original personal stories, and a 23-page introduction by Dick B. This Introduction explains: the origins of the First Edition; the importance of the personal stories (all but 3 of which were removed from subsequent editions); and the part the personal stories were intended to play in Bill Wilson’s “evidentiary” proof that the Big Book’s “Solution” had been tested and proven to work. Many of these first edition personal stories show the pioneers individually giving testimony verifying the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible played in their healings.

Forthcoming Sponsor’s Guide based on the first edition--Though it is still a work in progress, this annotated written and verbal study of the original program and several of its personal stories will enable sponsors to show newcomers and others exactly how the various segments can be understood and used in the manner intended by the founding AAs.

# 2--Panelists and Special Guests: Of particular note is the part played by the many panelists and special guests who traveled from afar to the Summit Conference Meetings. Our objective was to have experienced, long clean and sober, Christian leaders show how the mission of the International Christian Recovery Coalition is succeeding in their respective areas of endeavor.

Panelists included intervention and assessment experts, Christian recovery pastors and counselors, Christian treatment program owners, Christian bridge group leaders, Christian family counselors, sober living program leaders, A.A. historians, Christian recovery pastors, two members of the International Christian Recovery Coalition’s newly-established Speaker’s Bureau, authors, and experienced 12-Step Fellowship leaders and Speakers (and we will review their reports in a later release).

Special Guests: (1) Henry Lozano, Advisor to Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush, to California Governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown, and other government and non-profit agencies, and recently appointed as the director of Los Angeles Teen Challenge and Urban Ministries Initiative for Southern California. (2) Rev. Don Hall of Don Hall Ministries of Colfax, long associated with Teen Challenge, with YWAM, with street ministries, and churches he has pastored. (3) Rev. Cynthia W. Sloan, Program Associate, United Methodist Special Program on Substance Abuse and Related Violence (SPSARV). (4) Father Bill Wigmore, Former President of Austin Recovery Ministries, Austin, Texas; Presently Chaplain; and with  Episcopal Diocese of Texas Recovery Committee  (5) Rev. Jerry J. Liversage, Jerry Liversage Ministries, Inc./ Responding Recovery Ministries.

# 3--Plans for Frequent (possibly weekly) Radio Interviews by Dick B., Executive Director of the International Christian Recovery Coalition, of advisors, outreach directors, participants, panelists, historians, counselors, denominational and historical curators, and leaders of the many Christian recovery fellowships, study groups, prayer and Bible study groups,  residential treatment, homeless, veteran, re-entry from correctional institutions and hospitals, at-risk youth facilities, and professionals in the medical, psychiatrist, psychological, counseling, clergy, pastoral counseling, chaplaincy, and recovery pastoral work.

# 4--Plans for consulting, writing, and training those engaged in writing books, workbooks, guidebooks, pamphlets, articles, and programs for recovery so that they may include our three-fold Christian recovery materials as introductions explaining the Christian origins of the recovery movement and Alcoholics Anonymous, utilizing the existing “Conference-approved” materials of present day fellowships, and explaining how the “old school” Christian recovery principles, practices, and programs can be applied in recovery today for those who want and seek God’s help.

What We Would Like Each Panelist to Speak About


1.      For each panelist, 10 minutes is allotted. And it’s his or her own show. Meaning, we will not tell them specifically what to say, but we will say in the moderating remarks why they have been invited to share at the conference.

2.      In the 10-minute introduction, Dick B. and Ken B. will explain to the audience why the panelists have been invited, point to the program information about them, state what we hope they will cover, and comment on how important it is for the panel members to get to know us, each other, and those attending the conference to the extent possible. For example, conference attendees can meet with each other: (a) At the Friday night, Sept. 16, Lifelines meeting and subsequent workshop. (b) At meals before, during, and after the Conference. Dick B. and Ken B. will be in Orange County until Thursday morning, Sept. 22, and will be glad to meet by appointment from Saturday afternoon through Wednesday evening. Please call Ken B. at (808) 276-4945 to arrange a meeting with us.

3.      We will introduce and call on each panelist in turn to give a 10-minute talk.

What we hope each panelist will cover in their ten-minute presentation

1.      Point to their exhibit or brochures, and invite the audience to see them further.

2.      Explain briefly their particular recovery area (e.g., Christian treatment, Christian fellowship meetings, out-patient treatment, intervention, sober-living, pastoral or Christian counseling, Speakers Bureau, classes, outreach to prisoners, homeless, etc.)

3.      Explain briefly their particular approach to Christian recovery, and anything they would like to suggest as to how International Christian Recovery Coalition Participants can get involved with and/or benefit from the panelist's work.

4.      Explain briefly any ideas they have for growing the Christian Recovery Movement, for enhancing the effectiveness of the International Christian Recovery Coalition's “Christian Recovery Resource Centers and Persons” efforts, and/or for any future projects for the International Christian Recovery Coalition.

Letter # 2 for Potential Christian Recovery Leader and Participant

Dear Don:

As a trained professional, you undoubtedly realize some of the gaping holes both in A.A.

And in most Christian efforts—inadequate or non-existent emphasis on the healing power

And love of God, inadequate one-on-one personal work, inadequate resources, lack of

Information about the roots of Christian recovery, hostility toward A.A. or toward

Christian approaches, limited Christian efforts in time, love, service, and pervasiveness..

To make it simple, I know from my own experience with seizures, despair, loneliness,

Hostility to God by friends, and confusion on hearing about the illusory higher power

That I had difficulty as a Christian getting well from alcoholism and addiction in A.A.

While at the same time needing all the help I could get in the following facets of

Full recovery and healing.

Here are the ones we emphasize today: (1) Assessment (qualifying the newcomer). (2)

Medical diagnoses and possibly detox. (3) Referral that is hostile to none but informative

As to all. These needs may involve being in the hands of Christians who know about and

Can assist in (4) Intervention. (5) Counseling. (6) True Christian treatment programs. (7)

An historical element showing the Christian foundations of recovery. (8) After care,

Sober living, (9) Thorough participation in fellowships like A.A., Christian Recovery

Fellowships like the one you are planning, even adjunct help from such places as

Celebrate Recovery, Alcoholics Victorious, Overcomers Outreach. (10) Bible study.

(11) Fellowship with like-minded believers. (12) church. (13) prayer groups. (14)

Assistance to and information about housing, finances, food, clothing, re-entry

From prison, overcoming homelessness, veterans programs, vocational and trade

Training, pursuit of ged and perhaps higher education, locating employment, AND

(15) Working with others—the star accomplishment of A.A. and its precursors

Salvation Army, Rescue Missions, YMCA brethren, evangelists, Young People’s

Society of Christian Endeavor, and even the Oxford Group. (16) Legal, medical,

And pastoral help.

The point is that no one person or program or entity can possibly provide all

Of these. Certainly neither most churches and A.A. meetings and Christian

Fellowships. We need training for the trainers—which is what we try to do

Via every possible outreach—books, articles, websites, blogs, Facebook,

Twitter, forums, conferences, seminars, meetings, radio, TV. We also need

For the trainers to learn the solid Christian roots of the recovery movement

In the late 1800’s and the way in which A.A. grew out of these roots. We

Also need for trainers to inform their “clients” or “patients” or “newcomers”

Of the dangerous pitfalls of listening to and harboring idolatry, New Age

“spirituality,” humanism, nonsense gods, anti-A.A., anti-religious, anti-

Christian comments. And then for each trainer to link his particular area

Of endeavor in the Christian recovery arena to those of others in our

Coalition – all over the world

I invite you to comment, email, or phone and to join us. And the starting

Point is to allow yourself to be listed – at no cost to you –as a participant

In International Christian Recovery Coalition. To do this, you need only

Read our mission statement Then

Approve or submit a listing something like this:

“Dr. Don Hall, Jr., (ministry or recovery arena), (mail address with zip), city and state, phone if desired, email, URL”

By now my son Ken is probably sending you our material on the next steps to

Take, one of which is to try to make one of our two California summit

Meetings (September 17 or 24). The other is to start on the road to

Information, formation of your program, acquiring the tools, establishing

A Christian Recovery Resource Center or Person Worldwide, and starting

To network with those who can provide what you do not have or who may

Want what you do have.

God bless,
Dick B.

Reply to inquiries from a Christian substance abuse counselor about his role

Dear Don: I was very pleased to receive your letter as you are about to work

In the very field we are trying so hard to catalyze. I may write a couple of

Emails in order to avoid too many things in one place. But here are my

Preliminary thoughts:

  1. Your experience both with A.A. and with Celebrate Recovery is a common one, but certainly

Not daunting. Many have seen that Celebrate Recovery does not have the 24/7 one-on-one

Work with alcoholics and addicts that is needed for sustained recovery and growth. As to

A.A., the point we make is that we are “A.A. Friendly, Bible Friendly, Recovery Friendly, and

Friendly Friendly. Which is to say that we try not to knock any of the diverse efforts which

Have something for Christians but need to know and apply more about the Christian origins of the

Recovery movement and of A.A. in its earliest days. We are very clear that there are tens

Of thousands of Christians in A.A. who have been intimidated and hindered by several

Elements—the Adversary, the drift away from God we see all over, and ignorance of the

True, documented, effective beginning Christian A.A. Fellowship in Akron.

  1. We have gone through several phases since International Christian Recovery Coalition

Was founded in May, 2009 by a wide variety of Christian recovery leaders, workers,

Newcomers, and professionals who first were asked to define the problems they were

Having. And they did. Much as you have done.

  1. The last two and a half years have seen a large growth in our move toward a Christian

Solution that embraces the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible played

In the origin, history, founding, original program, and astonishing successes of the

Early A.A. Christian Fellowship of Akron founded in 1935. You probably know that

When we began in 1990, there were very few AAs who knew these facts, very few

Who didn’t believe they died with the Big Book, very few who knew the monstrous

Compromise that was made in 1939 to appease atheists, and agnostics, and the

Difficulty that opening the door to people of all faiths, no faith, and unbelievers

Brings about. To mention just a few, people haven’t realized the dangerous effect

Of talking about “higher power,” “spiritual but not religious,” and nonsense gods

Like a rock, Santa Claus, and light bulbs. We now know from the experience of

Many in the ensuing period that there are huge numbers of Christians in A.A., in

Treatment, in counseling who are bereft of information yet hungry for a solid

Base in recovery today with the power and love and guidance of God at their

Right hand. Properly armed with facts, they can utilize the 24/7 strength of

A.A. as well—just as I did over 25 years ago when I entered those rooms.

  1. I hope you will consider coming to one of our two summit conferences in

California because you can meet and hear from some long-sober, Christian

Fellowship leaders, and experienced AAs who have got a leg up on the solution.

  1. While I am preparing and getting ready to send my second email, I am going

To ask my son Ken to send you some of the materials we recommend as a

Guide for efforts like yours.

God bless,
Dick B.
