Christian Enhancement

“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
– Psalms 139:23-24

Volunteers of America Northern Rockies is committed to offering Christian Enhancement Program (CEP) as an adjunct option to Primary 12-Step Treatment within gender-specific treatment programs. CEP offers the support of a traditional program while supporting an environment that encourages a daily walk with Christ. Through this journey of discipleship every area of life, the physical, emotional, and spiritual, can grow as faith is strengthened.

We currently offer at both The Life House (Men’s Facility) and The Gathering Place (Women’s Facility) a high-intensity, long-term, medically monitored co-occurring residential treatment program (ASAM 3.5). The CEP is offered to residents as an enhancement to their residential treatment program. The CEP is intended to coach those struggling with alcohol, drugs, or gambling addiction(s) to integrate the foundational teachings from CEP to get clean and sober.

After a resident has completed the admission process, they are placed in their respective facility. Residents have the first two weeks after admission to explore all adjunct or enhancement programs offered with Primary Treatment being the focus. After two weeks a resident can choose to commit or not to commit to the CEP.

Those who choose to commit to the CEP will participate each week in up to 12 hours of CEP-focused groups and activities. CEP is open to anyone who chooses this option.

The curriculum includes Process Group, Bible Study, Life in Christ, Pastoral Care, Grief/Trauma, Recovery with Christ, Christian Parenthood, and attendance at Celebrate Recovery, as well as regular in-house and outside AA/NA/Self-help group meetings. Note: groups subject to change. In addition, there is an opportunity to participate in Morning and Evening prayer and devotions, fellowship, prayer, In-house Chapel, Baptism Services, and Individual sessions with a minister. Groups consist of lectures, open discussion, guest speakers, and presentation of homework that is shared in a supportive and caring environment.

The goal is to successfully reintegrate residents back into their rural community while maintaining a strong, sober recovery process and working toward sharing the message of the program in their home communities. To reach this goal, the program focuses on teaching, introducing, or reintroducing the importance of spirituality.
