 Recovery Programs

Does anyone know of an addiction recovery program that is Christ-centered and Bible-based?

 Re: Recovery Programs


Here are some in the Detroit MI area a person might look call about...

Teen Challenge (1 year program)
http://lifechallengesemi.org/detroit-campus/

Top Detroit Addiction Recovery Centers: Reviews and Ratings:
http://www.recovery.org/browse/detroit-mi/

SoberRecovery: Drug Rehab Detroit MI
http://local.soberrecovery.com/Drug_Rehab_Detroit_MI-r1298557-Detroit_MI.html

Celebrate Recovery Meetings

Celebrate Recovery is like AA but they meet in churches and usually serve a meal and then have singing and a short sermon and everyone goes to their different meetings.

God bless,
Lisa

 Re:

I should have specified that we are praying about starting an addiction recovery program at church. Celebrate Recovery is being discussed as an option, but I personally am leery of the 12-steps program. AA boasts a 5% success rate and the man who devised the program remained a chronic adulterer and chain smoker all his life, and was more interested in seances and Ouija Boards than the Bible - so why is the Christian world so enchanted with the twelve steps program?

Reformers Unanimous and Alcoholics for Christ are also options, but both offer conventional methodology with Bible verses sprinkled on top.

I have begun drawing up a "program" called "Romans Road to Recovery" -- that is what I mean by "Christ-centered ad Bible-based." Is there anything like that already in existence?

 Re:

Yeah, I'm not sure the fascination of AA programs. CR is just like it.

I've heard a lot of good things about Teen Challenge though. I'm not sure of their average success rate but based on what I've heard, it seems like it's much better than 5%.

Teen Challenge would be my advice to network with for a Bible/Christ-based recovery program.

 Re:

Thanks LMH. Teen Challenge and Life Challenge both have 85% success rates, but they are one-year residential programs. You just gave me an idea, though: I'll write to LC and ask what their program looks like, if they even have a "program."

 Re:

You mentioned RU. I think it is a fantastic ministry and solid curriculum and process. I differ that it is conventional plus bible sprinkles but I hope you succeed in what you are doing.

 Re:

Like all things Baptist, RU is Bible-oriented and it is the most wholesome Christian recovery program I know of. But I got exasperated when I brought two friends to one of their meetings and they immediately got hit with the Baptist Tribal Initiation Ritual: "If you died right now are you sure you'd go to heaven? No? Do you want to be sure? Then repeat after me..." You know the drill.

 Re:

Wayneman--yeah, that stinks big time. We discovered RU by divine accident: my wofe saw a billboard and the Spirit prompted her to tell me and we inquired further and wound up 3 months later in Rockford, IL at Reformers Unanimous training. We aren't baptist, so they would not let us use the name Reformers Unanimous. We called it Radical U so we could use the RU initials.

We did it from a heart that wanted to disciple people not only abusing drugs but in any habitual sin and also to mature those from our church who would submit to it. It is a dynamite discipling and equipping tool, IMO. But, I am laser locked on what you are saying about the IBF approach to people.
