Addiction Recovery is a biblically-based, Christ-centered recovery program designed to rescue, recover, and restore those with addictive behaviors through the power of the victorious life found only in Jesus Christ. We acknowledge the mental and physical side to addiction; but we also believe there is a spiritual side to addiction. We provide support and hope to those dealing with addictive behaviors through faith, the church, and mission.
Addiction Recovery meets at Friendship every Friday evening from 6:30pm-8:30pm. You will be welcomed by one of our friendly greeters and given some information to help you begin your evening. The meeting is divided into three sessions: (1) Stories of victory are shared (2) Groups and individuals are personally counseled from God's Word, and (3) lessons are taught on overcoming temptation. The evening concludes with "Happy Hour", a time to enjoy some light snacks and fellowship with other attendees.
Eric Anderson has been the Director of the Friendship addiction recovery ministry since our first meeting on October 22, 2010. A dedicated worker, Eric also serves in many of our adult and children's ministries, as well as teaching our Overcomers Adult Sunday School Class which is an extension resource for those attending the addiction recovery ministry. Along with his wife, Eric maintains an experienced, well-trained staff of leaders who provide counseling as well as guidance in Biblical growth for attendees of the program.

Eric speaks about Philip the Disciple at a Wednesday night Bible study.
Philip is described as a disciple from the city of Bethsaida, and the evangelist connects him with Andrew and Peter, who were from the same town.
He also was among those surrounding John the Baptist when the latter first pointed out Jesus as the Lamb of God..
