The Cost of Progressive Treatment is Progressively Higher

Which free Christian live in addiction recovery program offers the best combination of Faith based recovery and progressive science based services? Beggars can’t be choosers and there is zero money to pay for treatment but we are hoping to find a program that is Faith based but also aware of science and uses more progressive treatments on top of just the 12 steps and prayer, etc. We are looking at the Salvation Army and Teen Challenge but these do not seem very progressive.

Hi. Thanks for your question. What you seem to be seeking is Christian based, 12 step based, scientifically advanced, and free. This combination is relatively rare at any price - much less for free. The Salvation Army is an excellent program. I hope it works well for you/your loved ones and after treatment I hope you remain mindful of how it is these programs are funded. (Pay it forward).

The best free ongoing combination of steps and faith is still your local AA/NA meeting and I can't recommend them highly enough. Good luck to you and blessed be. Best, Jim
