About Firm Foundation Recovery

Drug abuse and addiction cost American society more than $740 billion annually in lost workplace productivity, healthcare expenses and crime related costs. Roughly 65% of all inpatient, outpatient, and sober living house options nationwide support medicated recovery.

Our mission is to build a healthy pro-social environment stressing personal responsibility, in depth introspection, and positive reinforcement. Healing clients with a spiritual journey through the 12 Steps for Christians. Building new goals, beliefs, and values built on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ.

Currently, 21 million Americans struggle with substance addictions. That is more than the number of people who have all cancers combined. The fact that only 1 in 10 people with substance addictions receive treatment points to a deficiency in America’s health care system. According to the National Survey on drug use and health (NSDUH), 19.7 million American adults (aged 12 and older) battled a substance abuse disorder in 2017. Of that total, almost 74% of struggled with an alcohol use disorder. 38% of those adults suffering from a substance abuse disorder in 2017 battled with illicit drug use. That same year, 1 in 8 adults struggled with both alcohol and drug use disorders simultaneously. In 2017, 8.5 million American adults suffered from both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder or coinciding disorders.

Our Vision

To raise $800,000 and build a facility in Kent County that will provide a three to six month inpatient drug and alcohol recovery center where we maintain a healthy pro-social environment stressing personal responsibility, in depth introspection, and positive reinforcement, healing clients with a spiritual journey through the 12 Steps for Christians. Building new goals, beliefs, and values built on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ. Provide transitional housing for continued healing and growth, while incorporating healthy relationships, a home church, volunteer work, continued Christian 12 Step work, gainful employment, pro-social responsibility, and a strong relationship with Christ, understanding the spiritual lead of a family. Provide healthy employment opportunities with practicing Christians who have new or existing local businesses, who encourage fellow Christians growing in their relationship with God, themselves, and their community.

Unity For Healing

The Recovery Process

First, clients completely detox from all substances at an existing qualified location. They are medically cleared to physically participate in inpatient care. No maintenance drugs such as methodone, suboxone, and subutex. Such drugs continue cognitive distortions in the brain not allowing us to honestly evaluate our life experience. Every human being requires love, acceptance, security, respect, and trust on a fundamental level. This is the basis for our emotional, psychological, and cognitive development where our sense of self worth and view of self begin. Identifying what we missed out on, when we missed out on it, how it transpired, and why we missed out on these needs allows us to expose our core issues. These external forces dictated our self defeating thoughts, feelings, and actions toward ourselves and others. Once aware of this, the only way to begin healing and unlock growth is with forgiveness and love. Understanding that we are not at fault for how we identified with our experience allows us to forgive. Truly forgiving ourselves and others allows us to become internally driven. Basing our thoughts, feelings, and actions toward ourselves and others on how God views us and how He instructs us to view ourselves. He created each of us to have a rich fulfilling life pursuing His plan and purpose for our lives. Jesus is our example given to us by our Father in heaven. He died on the cross for our sins. When we accept Him as Lord and Lead of our life, knowing that the way to God is through the Son, we are blessed with the gift of the Holy Spirit. When we lean into God, through loving ourselves and others, He blesses us with internal gifts. These are the Fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. With this  transformation taking place during 3-6 months of inpatient care, 6-12 months of transitional housing, and a work fellowship we are well on our way to healing communities one life at a time.
