4 Stages Of Transformation
Our comprehensive, 12-month program is broken down into the following 4 phases – each with a unique role in the entire recovery process. The 4 timed phases include: Foundation, Discovery, Application, and Launch.
Foundation – First 30 Days
Those admitted to the program will be housed in a safe environment that is free from drugs, alcohol, and other distractions. The routine will be narrowly structured to provide an opportunity to focus solely on recovery and gently begin the Biblically-based healing process. These initial 30 days include 1-1 counseling, group counseling and education classes, personal time needed for reflection, and other life-enriching activities. Loving care and support from our trained coordinators and licensed, Christian counselors will play a significant role in the Foundation phase.
Discovery – Months 2-5
Residents will continue both individual and group counseling, with an emphasis on building relationships with God, self, and others. The restoration process with friends and family begins slowly and gently through weekly phone calls, writing letters, and monthly in-person visits at Family Day. Also, residents will begin a gradual transition into a 20-hour weekly work environment with the goal of teaching responsibility and commitment, and restoring dignity and self-respect.
Application – Months 6-9
As the months progress, the residents will work up to 35-40 hours each week, offsetting much of the cost of the program and allowing Restore Addiction Recovery to operate at a fraction of the cost of other traditional recovery programs. The men will begin to receive a small monthly stipend to save or spend as they choose, guided by the stewardship principles learned in the program. Residents will be strongly encouraged to engage in the local church and community. Learning to serve others is key. The Application Phase provides more freedom for the residents and more closely resembles life outside of Restore Addiction Recovery. Men will serve as House Leaders and continue to learn how to handle more responsibility. Additionally, volunteer Recovery Coaches will support the men in a mentorship-like role in their continued development and preparation for graduation from the program.
Launch – Months 10-12
The men in the program will be encouraged to impart their experience, strength, and hope to the men in the earlier phases of the program. We will help them build a Life Development Plan that emphasizes gainful employment and career development, healthy living and relationships, leadership, community involvement, and other important life skills. Our goal is to help each man become recovery ready – focusing not just on sobriety but also on real life transformation. This includes helping them find a secure job and career plan, a safe place to live, training in basic life and relational skills, and a strong, supportive network for continued accountability and care after their time at Restore Addiction Recovery. The program concludes when the coordinators, counselors, and residents all mutually agree the Life Development Plan is complete. By this time, the men will have all the necessary tools and learning needed in order to achieve long-term sobriety and real change that lasts.
In the Bible, Jesus Christ said “I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.” We want everyone to experience the abundant life God desires for all of us.
We believe in the power of prayer. Our goal is to pair each man in our ministry with a volunteer who has committed to praying for specific prayer requests on a monthly basis. Will you consider joining our Prayer Partner Program?
There are several ways to partner with Restore Addiction Recovery and become active in supporting the solution to the substance abuse crisis. Contact us to discuss opportunities and current needs.
Although the men provide about 65% of the funds needed for the ministry through our Community Partner Program, we depend on generous individuals, churches, and businesses to provide the rest. Your support will go directly towards the men in the ministry and help provide basic living needs, curriculum materials, and offset a portion of their stay.
