At Bethesda Recovery, women learn how to break free from the ties of addiction by pursuing wholeness — physically, emotionally and spiritually. The faith-based rehab utilizes a biblical approach to recovery called the 12 Gates, which offers hope and healing through a spiritual encounter with Jesus. Therapy and life coaching is also offered in a safe and structured environment with 24/7 supervision.

Bethesda being a spiritual program based on biblical principles, while also incorporating other recovery steps, caught my attention. Also, the constant contact with the director, building a "trusting" relationship before my arrival, helped my final decision. My experience was not an easy one to say the least but extremely effective at Bethesda Recovery. I gained a true identity, not per say an "addict" in recovery. I was and still being restored to hopes, dreams, family and friends. Learning about Jesus Christ, and the Twelve Gates( part of this program) I found life and a future. I continue to live drug/alcohol free, and still very much affiliated with Bethesda Recovery. I strive to give back as much as they have given me. A new life.
