S2L Recovery (S2L) has helped thousands of men achieve better health, spiritual growth, and deeper relationships to the people they love. Our intensive approach to addiction recovery sets us apart and has proven successful for more than a decade.
We believe that you don’t have to be labeled an “addict” forever.
Addiction is usually caused by people seeking an escape from something else. It’s a heart issue that drives the mind and then the body. Christ tells us that you must,
“First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.” – Matt 23:26.
At S2L we focus on the root of the issue and encourage students to listen to our Christian teaching and mentoring perspective to understand how to not just stop drugs and alcohol, but to be something more than an addict. Most recovery programs want you to believe that you have to identify and even introduce yourself as an addict to others–never forgetting you’re an addict fearing you might fall back to thinking you’re not and risk relapse. The bible teaches:
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” –2 Corinthians 5:17
From an addiction standpoint, alcohol and drugs are both considered the same. It’s the addiction that we are addressing, not the substance by which they’re addicted. Men often come to us for help after a relapse, following release from another treatment facility before they were ready, or suffering a consequence from their addiction by friends and family.
Our residential program can last up to four months or beyond – much longer than the typical 28-day rehab – to help students achieve stability and prevent relapse. We do everything in our power to lay the foundation for lifelong freedom from addiction and to end the need for repeated visits to rehab.
This follows the recommendation for treatment length from the National Institute on Drug Abuse:
“Generally, for residential or outpatient treatment, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness, and treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.” – National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
Men at S2L advance to the next phase of the program only when they are ready. A detailed, graded evaluation process determines when it’s time for each student to advance based on 30 day increments.
