Christian Family Center/Men's New Life
"If man is willing, God is able"
The Christian Family Center's New Life Program is a six to eight month residential treatment program for those addicted to alcohol and drugs. It is our belief that if a man is willing, God is able to restore him to spiritual well being and free him from the bonds of addiction. We are not unique in that belief; the vast majority of treatment programs around the world understand that without a spiritual awakening a man has little chance of remaining clean and almost no chance of being happy and productive.
What We Believe...
We know that the 12 steps commonly used in secular treatment programs come directly from the Bible and it is our belief that if the original text is available, and it is, why not use it. We want the men who come to our program to break free of the bonds of addiction and no one has ever devised a treatment to accomplish that better than God. We are interdenominational and do not ask a man to accept any church's creed or dogma that would conflict with their own personal beliefs. We do require daily Bible study and chapel attendance. Our minister, along with ministers and lay persons from the community churches, lead our services. We believe that surrendering our will to God and allowing him to work in our life begins with daily worship.
Our primary focus is on a man's spiritual development; however, we recognize that often there are medical or psychological problems a man must address. For this reason, although we are not a medical facility, we do provide transportation to medical or dental appointments. However, the individual student is responsible for any costs including transportation. We accept dual diagnosis students provided they are maintained on their medication and are able to function independently and harmoniously within our community. It is a part of the philosophy of the Christian Family Center that we should all work to be as self-sufficient as possible. For that reason work therapy is a part of our program of recovery. Each man is expected to work to help maintain our facility.
