What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Chemical dependency is a widespread condition that affects all people. Prescription drugs, illegal drugs, and alcohol caffeine and nicotine this social calamity takes its toll on most families in one form or another. Statistics from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration show an estimated 29.5 million illegal drug users in 2009. Substance abuse is one of the costliest public health problems in the U.S. It's a condition that persists, and becomes progressively worse with time.
Through acts of kindness and support, the Adult Rehabilitation Ministry (ARM) offers a residential based program designed to transform chemically dependent individuals into productive, chemically free, self-sufficient members of society. This is accomplished when clients experience continuous acts of loving and accountable spiritually faith-based relationships, discover pathways to restoring broken families, and by offering a Christ centered, Bible based 12-step program.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

ARM's vision is to mobilize chemically-free men and women to rebuild their lives, families, and communities through the love of Jesus Christ.

Our faith based purpose compels us to help our clients gain a spiritual perspective that equips them to deal with the complexities of life. We teach clients to value the biblical lessons of Matthew 22:36-40. To Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, mind, and soul and then to love one another and become willing to give back what they have received.

The recovery ministry includes narcotics anonymous and alcoholic anonymous (NA/AA) support meetings, biblical counseling, as well as group and individual sessions. The program is six months to one year with participants residing in houses on the campus of Golden Gate and include a daily curriculum administered by the program director.

Primary care is a six-month comprehensive inpatient care program. A 12 step faith based curriculum is taught utilizing the principles of Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. Additionally, Primary Care clients undergo intensive training in Job Readiness, Technical Skills, Life Management, Therapy / Family Counseling and Bible Study. During this time, clients are redirected and transformed in their methodology, spirituality and physicality.

Aftercare is an optional six-month program offered to participants who have successfully completed Primary Care. Aftercare provides men with the opportunity to slowly transition back into their communities. While in Aftercare, participants continue to receive inpatient services as they seek and obtain employment and attend outside AA/ NA meetings. Aftercare clients participate in holistic activities to not only heal physically; but to heal through sense of well being. Credit repair, money management and legal assistance are interfaced during Aftercare to insure that upon leaving, a client is restored financially.

Relapse Intervention is designed for clients who have suffered a relapse in their recovery after completing Primary Care. Relapse Intervention is a flexible–term inpatient program which helps participants to assess the reasons for their relapse and reinforce skills gained during Primary Care treatment. Participants in Relapse Intervention must establish new objectives and goals and develop a relapse prevention plan to successfully aid their road to recovery.

We have opened a Women's facility in 2017, we are currently working on establishing that program. We are also looking to expand as we continue to succeed in our mission. With more housing, we can accept more people into the program. We currently have two houses for men and one for the women.
