Life Recovery Services

About Life Recovery

The Life Recovery Program is a residential program offering comprehensive help and hope for men, women and children in desperate circumstances, such as chemical dependency, domestic violence issues, or destructive relationships. Our curriculum offers Bible classes, recovery and relapse prevention training, general life skills application, mentoring, physical fitness and cultural recreation. Our goal is to enable men and women to establish healthy relationships and to develop Godly choices that will benefit their lives and those around them. This long-term program (9-12 months) provides the support necessary for recovery, restoration, and empowerment to sustain a healthy and whole outlook for the future.

Child care assistance is available for women with children.
