Rising Above Addictions
Many of the women come to Redemption House with a history of substance abuse. Therefore, dealing with addictions is a very important part of Redemption House’s mission. Our services take many forms.
- Individualized and group counseling.
- Support-based groups.
- Therapeutic community living.
- Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) classes.
- Identifying Addictive Behaviors groups.
- Accountability classes.
- Relapse Prevention.
- Identifying thinking errors and character defects.
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered 12 step approach to recovery based on the beatitudes of the Matthew 5. It emphasizes personal responsibility to our poor choices, allowing us to move past our hurts, habits, and hangups. The program uses spiritual growth and God’s healing power as residents move forward in their recovery.
When a resident needs treatment or services that Redemption House doesn’t provide, we refer her to outside agencies.
We encourage residents to develop and engage in behaviors which will help them live a life free of criminal thinking and drugs/alcohol. This includes developing a network of peers who will support their recovery efforts.
Our goal is to help residents gain the skills needed to overcome the destructive habits that have plagued them. When they leave Redemption House, they have a newfound confidence and belief in themselves. This enables them to continue on the path to a successful life apart from crime and substance abuse.
