About Us


Our History

Founded in 2017, Restore Addiction Recovery began when a father and a pastor knew more had to be done about the drug, alcohol, and opioid crisis destroying the lives of individuals, families, and communities. They knew that God’s love and healing needed to reach into the darkest corners of our
community, and they envisioned a safe and welcoming place where drug and alcohol addiction could be holistically treated.

Restore Addiction Recovery will offer a long-term addiction treatment and recovery ministry that is Christ-centered, Biblically based, and clinically supported to transform the lives of those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

Our Mission

To provide compassionate, individualized care and life-changing truth which empowers men struggling with drug and/or alcohol addiction to restore their relationship with God.

Our Vision

To train, coach and inspire individuals, families and communities to live the life God always intended by developing a Christ-centered, biblically based and clinically supported organization committed to addiction-free living through the transformational power of Jesus Christ in partnership with God’s Word.

Our Purpose

We want everyone to experience the abundant life that God desires for us.

“The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10

Workforce Development Program

  • We will partner with local companies who share our vision, providing real jobs for the men in the ministry with the intention of securing a career once they graduate.
  • Work weeks will begin in the 11-Month Transformation with 20+ hours per week and increase to 40+ hours per week in the final months.
  • Through our Workforce Development Program, the participants will contribute as much as 65% of the total operating cost of the ministry. The balance of the cost, however, requires the generous support of those whom God has called to financially partner with us.
  • We believe this will teach the men responsibility and begin to restore dignity and self-respect.
