OUR PROGRAM


The Grace Sober Living (GSL) Christian discipleship recovery program is rooted in a holistic life of Christian faith by mentorship, accountability and strong connection to a faith community. The recovery program is founded on these principals as well as strongly encouraging involvement with support group organizations such as Celebrate Recovery, Narcotics Anonymous and/or Alcoholics Anonymous and, most importantly a connection to a local faith-community committed to supporting, praying and encouraging those residents in the program. Recent data points clearly point to the significantly greater efficiency of faith-based addiction recovery programs.
