This is a recovery life program to manage life from addiction to recovery for men and women providing classes dealing with spiritual, emotional and physical issues.
The New Life Program, Men's Component is a 24 bed, residential, addiction treatment program located at the Gospel Center Rescue Mission, Inc. The applicant must make a six month commitment with the possibility of an additional six months of after-care.
The men served by the program are those most likely to benefit from an intensive, residential treatment. NLP strongly believes that the whole person, including spiritual aspects, family, community and environment must be addressed to affect a long-term life style change.
A typical day in the life of a client in the NLP includes three nutritious meals, access to clothing, a semi-private cubical space in a dormitory with as many as 24 other clients, evening chapel service, group sessions, individual counseling session, time on the computer, adult learning center and a four hour work daily ministry assignment.
The second phase of the New Life Program is where student's begin to make and pay restitution to society. They begin employment and/or go to school and pay for program fees. The final phase extends for additional 2.5 years for stability in the Hope Housing residences.
