Every man and woman in our two Christian rehab programs in Southwest Florida is provided the tools, encouragement, training and mentoring needed to regroup and restart their life in a more positive direction. Getting off drugs or alcohol doesn’t happen quickly, as some rehabs contend. It can take weeks for the effects of the substances to leave the body, and only then can the life rebuilding begin.
We are one of few addiction recovery programs that will dedicate a whole year to work with each resident. That is a huge financial commitment by the organization and the community, but complete recovery takes time. The day-to-day structure, community, and faith emphasis over such an extended period of time bring addicts slowly out of addiction-influenced thinking into an awareness of a purpose for their life and a new way of thinking and living. Such a new purpose and way of living is one that has no place for abusing drugs or alcohol; addiction is replaced by self-love, peace, happiness, purpose and an excitement for the future.
