Ready Now Recovery – An Outpatient Program to Transform your Life

Ready Now Recovery is committed to creating an outreach component designed to strategically engage the “not ready” in overcoming addictions to substances, gambling, pornography and other illicit obstacles in your life. Our goal is for everyone impacted by addictions and other life-controlling issues to have access to recovery through Jesus Christ.

There is not a determined length of time for this program. You determine the groups you need for healthy recovery. We give resources to create an action plan and set goals concerning your relationships, education, employment, and spiritual growth. We also recommend that you build a team that helps you through the process of recovery.

Adult & Teen Challenge of Central Canada rebranded our outpatient approach to Ready Now Recovery in June 2021. Guided by core values of Transformation, Accountability, Community, and Outreach, we utilize innovative and diverse methods to accomplish a broader impact, making recovery resources available all across Canada.

Our Values

Male adults are reading the Holy bible by pointing to the character and to share the gospel to youth. The cross symbol, The books of the Bible, Concepts of Christianity.


How long will it take? What if I fail? When will I be free? All of these questions are a part of the transformation process. Through a Biblical Perspective, a loving community, and relevant resources, our groups will guide you through that process of transformation.


Affordability, location, relevance, safety, and resources are essential to recovery.  We are committed to providing a diverse curriculum for affordability and relevance. We offer in-person and virtual groups to provide safer locations. We have resources for referral to professional care and residential programs.


Recovery is more than an individual journey. It takes a community — and it makes a community. It isn’t always easy, but we can always do it together. We are committed to training community leaders to establish in-person and virtual groups.


We all know there are individuals who are not ready, so what can we do to help them in the process of becoming ready? Partnering with other non-profits weekly to serve, love, encourage, educate, and build relationships, fosters an organic invitation to attend groups.

What is the Ready Now Recovery Curriculum?

Life-controlling issues are complex. They affect the whole person – mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Our groups are designed to address each of these areas, providing healing and restoration to the whole person, not just treating the symptoms.

To complete the curriculum, Adult & Teen Challenge of Central Canada incorporates different elements for a well-rounded and whole recovery program.

Addiction Education

Help is available to help you break free from addiction. With practical and spiritual steps, the nature of your addiction can be exposed as well as any other life-controlling issues with drugs or alcohol that may have been involved in leading up until now towards a new normal where freedom exists for those who choose it!

Breaking Free

This seven-week curriculum series covers the topic of addiction through a biblical worldview. Topics include: Exposing the Nature of Addiction, Confronting Toxic Denial, Understanding Grief & Addiction, Ending the Addictive Cycle, Building a New Legacy, and Establishing a New Normal.

Stepping Into Freedom

Stepping into Freedom is a Christ-centered twelve-step program suggested for use in support groups, recovery groups and home groups. It offers help for anyone struggling with a life-controlling problem like drug addiction, alcoholism, sexual addiction, gambling or workaholism.

Social Development

Healthy relationships are the key to success. But they’re not easy! This group will equip you with tools for investing in your life and navigating any interactions, whether those be strained because addictions or other controlling issues like abuse–or even just everyday struggles like poverty that sometimes come into play when one person has more power than another over decisions of loved ones.

Concerned Persons

This 9-week course is designed for people with a relationship with a person with a life-controlling problem. It emphasizes the need for each other. It helps people focus on Christ rather than on the problem. It provides a way to minister to people’s felt needs and then pointing them to Christ and ways/means to overcome addiction.

Spiritual Growth

The gospel changes everything because it produces change. You can discover what working out your salvation looks like and be transformed from addiction to freedom when you learn how hear God speak in Scripture, respond appropriately during informal prayer sessions with him as well understand the importance of sharing one’s faith throughout any situation or natural conversation that may arise.

A person who has been addicted all their life could very easily come across scripture that tells them about Jesus’ sacrifice on behalf of our sins – this would offer much-needed relief for those struggling against an ever overpowering force called “addiction.”

Emotional Intelligence

This course will equip you to process setbacks and disappointments healthily with the help of scripture. You’ll gain freedom from your problems by taking control over them through transformational techniques based on Christian principles.

Freeing yourself up emotionally so nothing can bring down what Christ has already built back up again.


Within the Ready Now Recovery Program, Adult & Teen Challenge equips you with study material and coursework to transform your emotions, outlook, and circumstances by controlling your thoughts. By the end of the program, you will process emotions such as anxiety, fear, and anger differently.

Intimacy with Purpose

The Intimacy with Purpose track covers the topic of healthy intimacy.

This program outlines the importance of relational, non-sexual intimacy with God, others, and in marriage. In these studies, we utilize a picture of a pyramid to explain God’s design for healthy intimacy. Suppose sexual intimacy is the top point of the pyramid…the smallest part, because it takes up a relatively small amount of our time on this earth. It’s essential, but it needs a solid foundation to be safe, healthy, and stable.

Restoring Families

This study helps to minister to families caught in the cycle of abusive relationships. The curriculum deals with overcoming these abusive relationships through Christ and is recommended for use in support groups and Christian counseling.

Facing Anxiety

Pastor Jonathan Pokluda explores how Christians can face anxiety head-on in this four-session series. With real-life stories from people facing various kinds of anxiety, this series helps you see that peace can be found on this side of eternity.
