U-Turn For Christ is a residential rehab for men trapped in the deceptive, never-ending cycle of addiction. The facility in Payson, Arizona offers a Christian Discipleship Re-entry program, which provides residents with the opportunity to give back to the community as they recover from drug and alcohol addiction. U-Turn’s goal is to teach men to be independent, self-supporting and stable under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, so they may become assets to family, church, friends. employers, schools and society.

Meet The Staff

Mario Rocha
Associate Pastor

I came to U-Turn For Christ in July of 1995, thinking I was going to stay for two months, get sober, and move on to whatever God had for me next. I didn’t know what God had for me next was to serve in this ministry, and I truly count it a privilege. In November of ’99 I was ordained a Pastor and I now serve as the Associate Pastor to Pastor Gerry Brown. Through the years I’ve witnessed God’s miraculous work in restoring lives, marriages, and families; including my own. I’ve had the honor of helping set up ministries for U-Turn For Christ in Tennessee, Kenya, and Thailand, before I was married. In 2008, I met my beautiful wife, Evelyn, and we wed April of the following year. She also serves, assisting Peggy Brown with Women’s Ministry. My hope and vision for this ministry is, if the Lord tarries, that my Pastor’s vision will be fulfilled in having a U-Turn For Christ in every State, discipling and restoring those who are trapped in the sin of addiction.

I was introduced to the ministry of U-Turn For Christ in 1998 by my parents who were referred through Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa. On October 21st 1998, I entered the ministry and just like many of the men and women who enroll everyday, my life was a mess and I could not do anything on my own strength to change. I’m one of the thousands of men and women who have come to this ministry and that have had the Lord do the miracle that only He can do. I married my beautiful wife, Rosie, in December of 1998, after graduating Phase-1; and have three beautiful daughters, Brittany 15, Kaitlyn 13, and Alicia 6. I now have the privilege of watching the Lord perform that same miracle in the lives of the men and women who enroll today, as He did in me 15 years ago, serving as the Administrator and Assistant Pastor. “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” Ephesians 3:20.

The wedsite says they will ween you off your medication. They don't do that they expect you to do cold turkey with gods love and grace. When you dont follow their comands they tell you to man up and that is just the devil having a strong hold of you. They say they are helping the community when in all realty you work at resort for free and fix whatever issues the tronto Christian camp may have and they donate to uturn for your hard serventry. They say your serving the lord but a million dollar facility should be able to donate with nothing in return. Real servent to the lord does it with nothing in return. They make people go out and do this straniess work when you have health problems amd then say to man up or say your not a man of your word cause they havent held up to their and twist gods word to belittle you and try to make you stay. They do take your social security number and i am not sure why. You trust that they have your best interests but it seems like its a money racket and not a facility to help. They have fire wood but everyone their is cold cause no one can start a fire that is in afase one, you cant even take a warm shower if your not the first two people in their and the facility is supposed to hold 28 men. Its not a 5 star rating at all maybe a half star. For people trying to help one another to get closer to christ this uturn is not the place. The first day i got their i was told they dont accomadate to my needs and i would have to figure it out with my helth problems. I said i would pay for my own food cause i have bad stomach and can get sick really easy and was told they dont go out of their way for anyone but fase 2. So i am suopoed to not eat or die cause God wants me to obey this man that is my new lord Andrew. I love the lprd and i been around many solid Christian men and love is what god teaches is the way to restore not by being a warden and then pay for that kind of treatment. My prayer for uturn of payson is that they can open their heart and see that god loves men and god isn't a profit center of hard working men that are trying to follow god and get off their addiction. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:4
