About RU Recovery Ministries

RU Recovery Ministries is a faith-based addiction recovery organization that started in Rockford, IL as a local class that has expanded to churches, and institutions across the country and into several countries. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that is governed by a board of directors. We are funded by members and people like you.


Addiction affects 1 in 4 people regardless of age, gender, nationality, or status. Our desire is to take the Truth that Makes Free to every man, woman, and child to Break the Chains, and Cycle, of Addiction.

Our Mission

RU Recovery Ministries is a faith-based recovery program bringing transformation to people and communities everywhere.

Our life and our legacy is ONLY JESUS. 
We should ALWAYS show COMPASSION toward people who don’t know Jesus as well as to those who already know Him. 
People and teams do not naturally grow stronger over time. Growth must be intentional. We want to purposefully add value to others and DAILY DEVELOP the plan that God is working in their life.

What We Do

RU offers classes, programs, for addicted men and ladies in churches, prisons, and communities across the US and around the world.

Local Meetings

Churches and Institutions across America host an RU Recovery class every week.

Recovery Shop
Over 400 studies have been conducted on the role of faith in addiction recovery and these studies have found a success rate of 40%-60% in most faith-based programs. This is significantly higher than the success rate of programs that do not incorporate faith or spirituality into their programs.
