We look to lead men who have been captured by addiction or other life-controlling issues to freedom through a Christ-centered discipleship program.
Springs of Life serves the residents of rural Appalachia that suffer from substance abuse disorder but cannot access treatment due to the lack of insurance or ability to pay for services. These are the individuals who fall between the cracks of the healthcare and treatment industry.
At Springs of Life we provide residents with six months of free services and slowly transition them towards becoming productive citizens. The program is structured in three phases with each phase three months in duration. Residents are employed in the last phase through our strategic partnerships. We believe in slowly reintegrating the residents as we help them build new support systems and identities while instilling hope, purpose, and empowerment.
Residents will gain understanding and stability as they apply each set of tools taught in our three phases. Our small group settings and daily activities will help residents process and discover important recovery skills that transcend into practical, healthy living habits.
Phase One is a progressive phase that will last no less than 90 days. During the engagement period, residents will focus on character qualities, Christian relationships, biblical principles, trade skills, life skills and stewardship positions that translate to practical recovery skills. Residents will also receive at least one hour of Clinical Christian Counseling per week.
Phase Two focuses on servant leadership while cultivating and maintaining healthy relationships. Residents will follow same schedule as phase one with some class variations.
Phase Three of the program is designed to help reintegrate the resident into society as a functional member. Residents are employed full time through our partnerships and continue to work at establishing aftercare goals, and build upon the foundation they have obtained during the first six months of the program.
Weekly drug screenings will be administered during all phases of the program.

Creative writing classes are available on weekends.
