Groups meet beginning at 7:40 and are dismissed no later than 8:30

Open share groups are designed to provide an outlet of support. In the group meetings participants are invited share where they are; their story, their thoughts, feelings, actions. The format of the group is not intended to “fix” anyone, only Jesus can do that. Anonymity and confidentiality are key requirements in an open share group.

The groups provide a venue of support as we gather with people who are struggling just like us, some perhaps, with the same struggles.

Our Groups

First Step Group – If you are attending Recovery at Powell for the first time, this group is for you. You will learn about Recovery at Powell, what takes place in open share groups, and discuss Step One.

Grief/Loss Support – Loss comes in many different forms. Divorce, death of a loved one, job loss, and more. Recovery is not just for addiction. This group is for anyone who may be suffering any type of loss.

Chemically Dependent Women – This group is for women over 18 who struggle with chemical addiction whether to alcohol, prescription drugs or illicit drugs.

Chemically Dependent Men – This group is for men over 18 who struggle with chemical addiction whether to alcohol, prescription drugs or illicit drugs.

Family Support Group – This is an over 18 co-ed group for those who are struggling with how to handle behavior of a family member; often a family member who struggles with an addiction.

Loved Ones Together

The opioid epidemic is taking lives through overdose and through the broken relationships of parents, children, siblings, spouses and other loved ones. The numbers are staggering. The stories are heart breaking. As isolated as you feel watching your loved one battle opioids, you are not alone. Other loved ones are on the journey with you, experiencing the unspeakable of opioid addiction.

Loved Ones Together gathers the first Tuesday of each month at Powell Church with the exception of January and July. We meet from 6:30-8:00. During this gathering, we fellowship, we share, and we have a speaker who shares information important for those on this journey.
Childcare is provided.

If you have any questions or would like to talk to someone who is on the journey as a loved one of opioid addiction, please contact us at (865) 938-2741 or email Brooke at
