RESTORE is a spiritual program that provides the addicted poor with the opportunity to find treatment and break free from addiction. Our organization was founded upon the hope and transformation found in Jesus Christ. From Him and through Him, we have the opportunity of new life.
Our program is shaped by our desire to see residents become fully restored to new life through faith in Jesus. A mandatory weekly Twelve Step Bible Study blends each of the Twelve Steps with corresponding Scripture passages, including interactive times of reflection and personal application. Understanding who God is and His plan for our lives is a vital part of learning to surrender to Christ. Transformation is a process that happens from the inside out!
What Makes RESTORE Different?
We provide recovery in a residential home.
We work with those recently released from incarceration who struggle with addiction.
We provide residential, transitional homes after the addicted poor go through a recovery program that offer support and accountability as they learn to live sober, productive lives. We are one of the few aftercare transitional recovery programs for women with children.
We offer mentoring and coaching to other compassionate leaders around the world, who are interested in providing services for the addicted poor.
Addiction Recovery Homes
In order for addicts to experience true change, it’s critical that they learn to maintain sobriety in the world in which they live.
At RESTORE, our long-term residential 12-step program includes classes in anger management, relapse prevention, boundaries, life skills, and Bible studies.
Our goal is to provide addicts with the tools they need to stay sober and give back to society.
Aftercare Recovery Homes
After the addicted poor go through a recovery program, we provide a residential home to transition into lifelong freedom from addiction.
With support and accountability, men and women who have completed a residential recovery program can continue into a living environment that will support their journey.
Women’s Aftercare Recovery Home
Most of our residents are mothers who, due to their addiction, have children detained as wards of the Court, under the control of Child Family Services. After graduating from programs, Child Family Services requires them to find a Sober Living Environment, but few of these homes are available to mothers
At RESTORE, these mothers are able to gradually be with their children and in time the court system awards their children back into their full time care.
RESTORE is successful in seeing our mothers graduate from our Aftercare Recovery Program and:
- Staying sober through a relationship with Jesus Christ and the Twelve Step Program
- Family reconciliation
- Their children back into their full-time care to establish their own home
- Becoming productive self-sustaining members of society, off of welfare
- Giving back by helping others and
- Having a great support system through the local church and the Twelve Step network!
