Graduation day at “The Camp” is a day we celebrate and relish, and represents a significant milestone on the journey of recovery. It’s unfortunate though that at this point many programs have limited options on what happens next.
At worst, they will be forced to return to their place of origin where they will have to contend with the same temptations that lead them them to become a addicted to drugs in the first place.
We believe that for a person to truly gain the practical living skills and confidence they will need in order to continue walking in Christ, victory, and recovery, that they are going to need help reintegrating back into society in a safe and sustainable way.
For that reason, we proudly offer graduates of a Christian treatment center the opportunity to participate in our transitional housing program in Dalton, Georgia with our parent organization, Providence Ministries Inc. At “Providence”, our graduates get the opportunity to grow away, rather than simply go away, giving them the best chance to truly overcome addiction.
The transition program at Providence Ministries exists to allow recent graduates of any addiction program the opportunity to safely reestablish themselves in society while continuing to develop their foundation in recovery.
Program participants are required to find a job, pay rent, make weekly recovery meetings, and attend spiritual and church functions.
There are some basic house rules of the program aimed to increase discipline while reducing restrictions through “incentivized restrictions reduction”.
Members are encouraged to visit with their family and take weekend passes approved by the house manager and deemed to be “recovery safe.”
Providence Ministries owns an apartment complex, where the men are housed. The apartments come fully furnished with meals available on our main campus. Men share the apartment with only one other roommate. There is also washers and dryers on the property, a work out room, and a friendly face to talk to and share a coffee with!
There is no limitation on how long or short a program participant must stay. Some participants end up staying 3-6 months while a few have been with us a couple years. Longer staying residents may even decide to take on leadership roles if they choose.
Whatever the goals God places on your heart, we deem success to mean a productive transition onto a safe and stable lifestyle that also honors God’s plan for your life.
