A Word about other organizations
We believe that the principles of recovery were founded in the Bible;
therefore we teach some of the same recovery principles that other
recovery-based organizations teach but we claim Jesus Christ as our higher
power. Because our way of teaching is similar to those recovery
organizations doesn't mean we are condoning or rejecting their teachings,
but rather we are simply teaching recovery principles we found in the Bible.
We believe that for MANY people with serious drug problems, REMOVAL
from the environment where drugs are available & REMOVAL from the
sources of pressure to use drugs is vital.
We believe that solitude, time away to reflect on one's life & the unfolding of
events that caused a need for drastic change is vital.
We believe that the solutions to the underlying reasons WHY a person's life
has spiraled out of control are often the result of the individual's choice to
deviate from basic Biblical teachings.
We believe that recovery can succeed through the development of a safe &
trusting relationship designed to bring the person to a place where they can
receive positive feedback, biblical instruction, and at times "difficult to hear"
feedback that will help the person come to terms with aspects of themselves
that may be difficult to acknowledge yet cause many of the chronic problems
in their lives.
