What We Believe
Jesus said unto them, “I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for the harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may rejoice together.” John 4:34-36
We believe the Christian approach to alcohol and drug addiction produces the most effective and enduring results. Therefore, we teach that the Bible is the inspired Word of God directing us to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Through the experience of the “New Birth in Christ”, an addicted person achieves not only sobriety, but more important, a permanent lasting relationship with the loving God who created him.
Biblical family counseling is a vital part of our therapy. The families of the men in the program are encouraged to participate in discussion groups and Biblical counseling sessions every weekend where each family member receives guidance and spiritual instruction in the rebuilding of family life. As a result, the Dunklin community has grown to be a lively local church body drawing from surrounding cities, former addicts, families in recovery, and other Christians desiring the holistic and earnest experience of Christ’s lordship.
