Faith in Recovery Christian Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Faith in Recovery is a Christ centered faith-based recovery and dual diagnosis program that uses a non-denominational approach to treatment. This program is designed to allow clients to establish their faith and relationship with God while also addressing their addiction. We integrate clinical therapies and faith based ideas into our customized programming.
Faith in Recovery is an all-inclusive, separate program, and not merely just a “track” as most other treatment facilities. Most similar type of programs (faith-based treatment tracks) consist only of a Bible study and a weekly off-site church service.
Faith in Recovery is a completely comprehensive Christian-based program. Every aspect of our drug and alcohol addiction recovery program revolves around the Christian principles and is God-centered.
We Welcome the Sick & Suffering from All Walks of Life
At Faith in Recovery (part of the Banyan Family), we welcome those in all walks of life. We welcome those in any denomination of Christianity, those from other religions, and those who have no religious background at all. We strive to be Christ-like in our actions. Jesus said all are welcome, so we stand by those guidelines. All that we require for this program is for someone who is seeking that spiritual connection.
We approach addiction and mental health issues from a spiritual perspective and are a fully integrated faith centered program in conjunction with evidence based clinical practice guidelines. We believe that it is important to combine the spiritual component with other clinical programming including educational, clinical groups, relapse prevention, and individual clinical sessions.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
– Jeremiah 29:11-13

How Do the 12 Steps Work?
The 12 steps were developed in 1935 for use in combating alcoholism. Since then, this program has helped countless people all over the world overcome addiction and alcoholism. The steps begin by first asking people to admit that there is a problem. People going in for recovery admit that they’re powerless to fight alcohol or drugs. Then, they take the second step to believe that a power greater than themselves can help them overcome substance abuse. From there, the 12 steps proceed toward healthy and therapeutic goals, helping them recover and stay realistic, admit wrongdoings and make progress toward goals without self-loathing.
