GRACE RECOVERY HOME
Grace Recovery Home is a FAITH based recovery program for men and women with the mission to provide safe, structured, substance-free housing that will instill in each resident a sense of responsibility and accountability. We believe that the more responsible you are, the less likely you are to use drugs or alcohol. We are committed to equip others to live life on life terms through the diverse programs we offer. Through our structured living programs, individuals may reunite with their families, develop a life style centered on concrete spiritual principles, and incorporate a standard of living that fosters their emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
Freedom from addiction can move your life forward in powerful ways. Better health, stronger relationships, steady employment and living with purpose – these are among the rewards of recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Our goal at Grace Recovery Home is to help people reclaim their lives.

Prerequisite for Development & Graduation
Recovery is more than just a one-time event. It is a lifelong process. Individuals that place recovery first and foremost in their life achieve long-term uninterrupted sobriety, and those that allow life’s distractions (e.g., work, family, relationships, financial wants, etc…) to interfere with their recovery process will relapse! We believe in the tools our residents will be equipped with through Counseling, AA, NA, and the Bible. They will be able to live life how God intended it to be lived. Jesus said, John 10:10 (KJV) I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Recovery is more than just stop drinking or drugging. We believe that there must be a “personality change sufficient to bring about recovery.” (Big Book pg.567) We believe that there must be “a profound alteration in his reaction to life; that such a change could hardly have been brought about by himself alone.” (Big Book pg.567) Attitudes are very important to recovery. “Three of these that are indispensible are honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness.” (Basic Text pg.18)
Recovery brings about a lifestyle change, a new way of living. “We are sure God wants us to happy, joyous, and free.” (Big Book pg.133) We believe those individuals who are “restless, irritable, and discontented” (Big Book pg. xxviii) are not actively working their recovery. Addictive behavior brings about “misunderstanding, fierce resentment, financial insecurity, disgusted friends and employers, warped lives of blameless children, sad wives and parents – anyone can increase the list.” (Big Book pg.18) Grace Recovery Home believes “a new life has been given us or, if you prefer, a design for living that really works” (Big Book pg.28) if you work it.
Grace Recovery Home Believes each resident is to display an attitude of recovery. “At the moment we are trying to put our lives in order. But this is not an end in itself. Our real purpose is to fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and the people about us.” (Big Book pg.77)
“We are not going to be perfect. If we were perfect, we would not be human. The important thing is that we do our best. We use the tools available to us, and we develop the ability to survive our emotions. We do not want to lose any of what we have gained; we want to continue in the program.” (Basic Text pg.31)
