When I came to Providence, I was completely broken inside. I was overwhelmed, nervous and didn't know what to expect as I've been to many rehabs before. Within an hour of coming into the program, I felt more loved and accepted than I have ever felt at any facility. The way God uses the staff helped change me and I know it's ok to ask for help. I have graduated the program and remain living in transition where I continue to grow and change. Providence is truly my home and I live an amazing life today.

THE best rehab I've ever been to. However I think that the certainty of follow-up care needs to be addressed.

Providence changed my life. I went broken, lost and hopeless. I left with a personal relationship with God and the ability to face whatever life may bring knowing that I am loved and forgiven. Words cannot describe my gratitude. I would recommend Providence for any woman struggling with alcohol or drug addiction. I still consider those women "family" and it was my "home".

I am a weekly volunteer, I am in and out each week. I am amazed at how each lady comes in. They are either very unhappy and struggling or they have drawn their own option before giving Providence a chance. But, shortly after a couple of weeks you can see a change in their facial expressions! Yes it is a bible lead recovery program. But it must start on the inside of each one and then the recovery can begin. Thank you family and friends for taking such an interest in your family member who comes to Providence .

What a precious place! Providence is in our hearts always as we are eternally grateful for giving us our sweet daughter back. We will never forget how they constantly pointed her to the Cross as the answer for her addiction. Hallelujah!!❤️

This place saved my life !!! I know that sounds cliche but it absolutely did !! I so much want to say that I "was" an alcoholic....but I know that I am and always will be an alcoholic!!! ...but because of Providence Ministry and their amazing women's program....I no longer drink or even think about it . I went to Providence kicking and screaming for their three month program, after graduating I left after much thought about possibly staying on in their transition program. I soon realized after about 6 weeks that I had made the wrong choice. I relapsed for a weekend and felt like such a failure . I immediately called the director and without making me feel ashamed or judged she told me to come back !! I was shocked and elated because I figured they wouldn't accept me back ! I returned for another month in the in house treatment.....then went into the transition program where I stayed for over a year!! The amazing ladies that are at Providence and their love of God got me thru this and I am a healthy, happy person today because of it. The housing at Prov. as we all come to call it is wonderful....beautiful homes on a beautiful mountain, feels just like home and is always a " non-judgmental environment. I highly recommend Providence if you've lost your way...they with the help of Jesus Christ will help you find your way !

I am one year clean and sober today and it all started with Providence. The staff is extremely nice and approachable. I was well fed and well taken care of. I made an amazing group of friends that I am still in contact with to this day. God is doing BIG things for the women in this program, if they are willing to do the work.

A good mix of classes that represent the Christian values/practices and secular recovery information. Staff members are not trained well. Facilities include 3 separate houses and structure is not consistent between houses. The rehabilitation program is a 3 month Christian facility with a capacity for up to 30 women. The program provides a safe environment for recovery and spiritual development. There are in-house and outsourced counseling options. The cost is low compared to other facilities.

i really enjoyed this program because my relationship with God grew to a place that i did not know existed. And they never forced anything on me. They let me grow on my own time. And everybody encouraged everybody! it was amazing. If someone really wants to make a change then this place is a great place to be. Every where you go theres going to be things you dont like, i wasnt sure about providence. However it was a great experience and i would recommend any addict to atleast try it.

I believe Providence saved my life. I started drinking at 13 and by 16 I was drinking every day. On top of that the last 15 years of that I used pills. Coming to Providence and really listening to what was being taught made me relieved to know I wasn't alone. While here, I accepted Christ and was given an amazing sense of peace. After graduating I stayed with the ministry and now run one of our women's homes. Come July I will have two years clean and sober!!

I have completed the 90-day program at Providence and I can't say enough about this program. The staff are amazing and truly care about the women who come here to find recovery and build a stronger relationship with God. If you are ready to surrender, this is the place to do it. Providence provides participants with the tools necessary to truly begin a life of recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. This program literally saved my life. I have spent nearly 25 years battling alcoholism and have been unsuccessful at maintaining any long term sobriety until coming to Providence. This program offered me an opportunity to truly look at my life and work through some very difficult issues that have had very negative affects on my self esteem and self worth. The Christian focus, for me, has been the missing piece. If you are ready to experience a level of peace and serenity that only God can offer through sobriety, you should call Providence and get started today.

I completed the 90-day program at Providence in February 2013. This program offers a safe place to begin recovery. Noone can make the choice for another, rather or not to be in recovery. If you come ready to make the choice to live, then Providence is the perfect place for you. I am now in the next phase, transitional, which allows me to work and still have the accountability needed early in recovery. Providence ministries is helping me to feel alive again.

I attended Providence Women's Recovery. It absolutely changed and saved my life...The houses are well kept and beautiful. The staff truly cares and assists in any way they can. I have learned a lot. My relationships with my family and loved ones are mended. My relationship with God is better than it has ever been. I've gained new, healthy, sober relationships with the ladies I lived with (my sisters). Any program like this depends on you more than anything. The tools are there and available, it's up to you how you use and apply them. I will be forever grateful to Providence Women's Recovery!!! I love yall! ***I JUST CELEBRATED 7 MONTHS CLEAN!!***

I came to Providence Ministries not just broken, but shattered...There is a reason why the program that Providence offers works if you surrender to it. This treatment facility provides something that no other rehabilitation center can offer. In fact, this is not a rehab…it is a rescue mission. What they offer can’t be prescribed and it can’t be solved behind bars or in a hospital setting. With my time at Providence Ministries...I have learned where to get strength during moments of weakness, where to find peace, and where to seek the truth...The joy I feel today cannot be compared to any type of high!

Yes this program is not a perfect one but honestly you get in what you put out. You can't expect everyone else to do the work for you...I have been in several much more expensive treatment centers and this is the one that has stuck. The Christian aspect was a major part of this as well as the compassionate staff. At other treatment facilities I was treated like a number and not a person. I highly recommend this program to anyone that is truly ready for recovery and willing to WORK for it! After struggling with multiple addictions for over a decade this was the place where I learned how to be free of them and now I am living a productive life, for the first time ever!

You usually get what you pay for, and this rehab is no different. If you're looking for 90 clean days then it's a place for you. If you're looking for an easy way out then it's a place for you. ... If, however, you're looking for comfort, integrity, healing, recovery, help, and half a chance to get it right then this place is not for you. Do NOT send a child or loved one here even if it's the only affordable option in your budget. It'd be a super big mistake if you do.

This program does not deliver as promised. It looks nice with a good website. There are no movie nights, weekend shoppoing, etc. There is hardly any Bible study, no AA, NA brought in by volunteers for an hour every other week. In 90 days I had 6 hours of 12step meetings and a total of 40 minutes counseling time, in 90 days! It\'s good for abstinence and if you\'re blessed with a decent group of women, the healing that can occur there. I hope the program can improve, but it\'s not what it advertises.
