“The more obstacles you have, the more opportunities there are for God to do something. 

Clarence W. Jones

Our Program

Recovery from any addictive sin such as, but not limited to, alcohol or drug addiction usually begins with detoxification, but detox alone is not enough. Research shows that very few will ever find lasting sobriety without a supervised program of a Christian recovery ministry.

 

Our program requires a nine-month commitment. Every man in the program is assigned a work task each day according to his physical ability and skills. The purpose of this is to learn good work ethics, apply relational skills, and develop teamwork in a closely supervised environment. 

 

We have adopted the Twelve-Step Program, which is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. As summarized by the American Psychological Association, the process involves the following:

  • admitting that one cannot control one's alcoholism, addiction or compulsion;

  • recognizing that God gives strength;

  • examining past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member);

  • making amends for these errors; 

  • learning to live a new life with a new code of behavior;

  • helping others who suffer from the same alcoholism, addictions or compulsions.

 

Our program is based on the fundamental belief that solutions can be found through faith in God. 

  • Morning and evening prayers, bible studies, and morning devotions are conducted on a daily basis.

  • Diocesan priests visit on a weekly basis and celebrate the Divine Liturgy with the residents and staff. Residents participate in the sacrament of Repentance and Confession and partake of the Holy Eucharist—the backbone of recovery and freedom from sin. In addition, residents enjoy one-on-one pastoral counseling with the priests.

  • Clinical group therapy is held three times per week by an experienced professional.

  • Volunteers offer classes for hymns, leadership development, counseling, and tutoring assistance.

  • Residents are involved in a daily work program which includes garden and yard work, kitchen work, house cleaning, keeping their rooms clean, general maintenance, upkeep of the facility and grounds, and other handwork projects.

  • TCC amenities and activities provide opportunities for individual and team activities. Residents enjoy sports and outdoor activities, in addition to monthly outings.

  • Families of the residents are encouraged to visit on specified days and times in an effort to build or rebuild family relationships that may be absent.
