Philosophy

U-Turn for Christ Kaua'i is a non-denominational ministry that treats adult men suffering from substance abuse, training them become healthy members of their families and community. Treatment takes place over two phases, with Phase 1 emphasizing compliance, responsibility (via daily chores) and life skills education, and Phase 2 addressing reintegration into society. The rustic, camp-like residence on the garden island of Kaua'i offers a serene, stripped-down environment in which clients can clear their mind and concentrate on their relationship with God, amidst the natural beauty that is one of his greatest gifts.

Lead Campus Supervisor

I was raised in a Christian home and lived with Christian parents throughout my entire childhood. I went to college and received my B.A. in Anthropoolgy from the University of New Mexico. I have been with the school as the lead campus supervisor since it started in 2005. I enjoy spending time with my son’s family, watching my grand-daughters play soccer, and playing golf on Saturdays.

Founder and President

Pastor Gerry and Peggy have worked hard to establish a family atmosphere in the ministry of U-Turn for Christ and Calvary Chapel Romoland. They pray that you would consider sending your loved ones to them so that they may receive Jesus as Lord and Savior and allow the power of the Holy Spirit to set them free from the bondage of sin.

18 hours ago 12 years Ago my life was falling apart and I was addicted to opiates Methadone and Psych Meds not to mention anything else that would pass in front of me. I tried to Take my own life many times yet hear I am. My mother found me help. She told me aren't you tired of doing it your way why don't you try it God's way? Then she told me about U Turn for Christ. Explained that you have to leave the psych meds and leave the worldly way behind and trust God and study and obey his Word. Also that you serve and work for the Lord and keep busy about his work which I didn't mind because I was taught to use my hands but now I could use them for good. Long story short I went and did not regret it. Set free for 12 years by Jesus at U turn for Christ Perris California! Not one relapse. I'm not perfect but Thank you Jesus I am As for the bad reviews take it from someone who has had success in this ministry not because I deserved it but because I truly believed what Jesus did for me and God used this ministry to set me free in Jesus Name! Bet my life on it. PS I am happily married for 9 years got three children and am forever grateful for this ministry. Mike Gomez Abq NM

I went through the first phase of turn for Christ and a bit of the second. I went to the Kauai location. I was charged $3500 but none was spent on me. They live in tents with no electricity, no restrooms, no sanitary cooking area, and outside showers. All food is donated and old. It is dangerously unsanitary! There are rats, mold in tents, roaches, and everything else that comes with outdoor living. There are no counslers or any info about addiction. You just work for free daily and read the bible and go to church. Nothing is allowed or tolerated and I mean nothing! Not even talking about drugs or listening to music! Your stripped of everything and abused till you are even more broken then when you arrived! I love Jesus but trust me when I say you don\'t need this joke of a place to become sober or to know the lord. There is NO form of treatment whatsoever! Not even an indoor place to get healthy or the correct food your body will need. I finished because I had no other options and I am no quitter I wanted to finish for myself and now I can speak the truth about what I experienced without any bias. I don\'t know where the $3500 went and there was no planning as to my next move when I had completed the 1st phase in July the director, or any of the two (yes 2) staff volunteers helped me figure out what I would do when I left since I learned nothing and they offered no help! They discipline you and make you dig a 5x5x5 hole if you swear, smoke a cig, or disagree with any beliefs or reason, or question anything! What they are doing is brainwashing addicts while taking they family\'s money and trying to justify it. Anytime I brought up the conditions or begged for help I was told to leave if I didn\'t like it. There are 2 pastors and one overseer who is 20 years old. He is a power tripping Jesus fanatic with a closed mind and the other two pastors are Polynesian bobybuilders I only saw maybe 5-7 times over the 2 month period. I was abused mentally and it appalls me to think of my time there. Please ask every question you can muster in your mind before even thinking of sending a loved one there. The intake coordinator says everything is paid for yet it does not even exist (living quarters,food,etc.). Ask for photos or their view on personally helping the people there and how they do that. Why are there no progress meetings? Or any meetings to see how an addict suffering is doing? Why is the woman on the phone saying room and board and meals yet it\'s a campsite with canfood? What if you get ill? What if you try to reason? What do they personally do to help with your addiction? Not what Jesus does. And what is the $3500 donation go towards!? This place needs to be shut down immediately. If you don\'t believe please ask the neccesary questions and see for yourself. If it could save one person I would be thinking different. I helped myself while being subject to tremendous mental abuse and a brainwashing atmosphere which was unsanitary and disgusting to say the least. I am sober because of my mindset and the lords help! Everything I said can be proven 100%. This review needs to be posted everywhere to actually find a way to change the program through awareness and to help those who are suffering there now. Call the intake coordinator and get the number to any of the 2 leaders to ask these questions and see credentials. I\'ve seen many people arrive then leave that day with no refund. The 3-5 people who are usually constant are there because they are lost and family will not take them back if they leave, but the family does not know the trial the addict faces. Please help me to help make a difference.
