We are blessed to have a team of staff and volunteers who truly care about each individual through the love of Christ. All of our staff have been delivered from addiction in their own lives and felt the call of God to give to others what God gave to them. Our staff can truly relate to the struggles individuals face in the recovery process.
Seeing a need for Faith based, nonprofit addiction recovery ministry in this area, we formed our organization to provide Christ-Centered Recovery to Kosciusko County and Indiana. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
We focus on using Biblical and evidence based recovery principles to provide freedom from addiction for our community. Our staff and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Using The Word of God and evidence driven models, we provide addiction recovery solutions that make a long-lasting difference.

We have many men who come to us with no financial means to pay the entry fee. We never turn down an individual for lack of ability to pay, however providing for an individual for 12 months is costly. You can help our ministry by sponsoring an individuals entry fee of $350. This investment could literally change a person’s life and will help you to feel connected to that person through your generosity! Pray and be led in your giving and God bless you!
