We provide faith based treatment because it works. The relationship between faith and spiritual practice and long-term sobriety is well documented. Thousands of men and women have been able to recover from drug and alcohol addiction through spiritual work and practice. That is why at the heart of our Christian rehab program are faith based treatment modalities including bible study, daily morning devotions, 12 step meetings, regular church services, Celebrate Recovery® meetings and Christian counseling services. In our faith based treatment program, we believe that the problems that lead one to drugs and alcohol and the problems caused by drugs and alcohol can be resolved through faith in God.
Faith and spiritual practice facilitates recovery because recovering addicts and alcoholics are living examples of how God does for us what we can’t do for ourselves. Many felt hopeless that they would ever be able to abstain from drugs and alcohol yet were able to through the help of God. Many addicts and alcoholics know that the way they are living is not the way God intended them to live. Through faith based addiction treatment and recovery, studying and working with other Christians, alcoholics and addicts have been able find themselves and God again. They know deep within that they are blessed to live happy and healthy lives as productive members of society. Our faith based drug and alcohol treatment program equips clients with the tools to be just that.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Upon entering treatment, clients have the option to choose our Christian Program. The MARK 2 Christian program incorporates elements of 12-step programs and will also utilize a spiritual mentorship program with our trained Christian leaders. Clients have the freedom to attend both program sessions if they feel motivated by their individual needs and counsel of their therapist.
Our program is designed to treat the physical and spiritual aspects of the disease of addiction while simultaneously addressing the mental health ailments that often accompany the disease.
“And when he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even at the door. And he was preaching the word to them. And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them, “Why do you question these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise, take up your bed and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic—1 “I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.” And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”
