Recovery Coaching

Recovery coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps individuals who are in or who are considering recovery from addiction to produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, or organizations — while advancing their recovery from addiction.

Recovery coaches affirm that there is innate health and wellness in each of our participants. We believe our participants to be creative and resourceful. We do not promote or endorse any single or particular way of achieving or maintaining sobriety, abstinence, or serenity or of reducing suffering from addiction. Our focus is on coaching our participants to create and sustain great and meaningful lives. 

Through the process of recovery coaching, participants deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting, the participant chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the participant toward action. Recovery coaching accelerates the participant’s progress in recovery by providing greater focus and awareness of choices, actions, and responsibility. Coaching concentrates on where participants are now and what they are willing to do to enjoy a better tomorrow.

Pure Word

The purpose of Pure Word is to serve those who desire to be free from a life of bondage to sin. This includes behaviors termed "diseases" or life-controlling problems in today’s society. We don’t focus on the past and what we were like but rather on what our Lord is presently doing in our lives. Focusing on the past causes us to boast in things that were and are unprofitable and also causes us to compare ourselves with each other.

Our meetings consist of "continuing steadfastly in God’s Word, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayer for one another." The truth of God’s Word, the Bible, will be the ultimate authority for the existence and activities of Pure Word Ministries.

Anyone is welcome to attend Pure Word meetings. They are structured so that the addicted, as well as those who love and desire to help them, can learn about the "sin" that holds their loved ones in bondage. All that is needed is a heart that is open to listen, a Bible, a pen, and paper to write down scriptures and notes. As individuals, we have found our faith, hope, and love complete in Jesus Christ. It is Jesus Christ who has given us the authority through the Holy Spirit to overcome and conquer all sin and fear that would hold us in bondage.

Mental Health Support Group

We offer a peer-based mental health support group. Peer support can be defined as the process of giving and receiving nonprofessional, nonclinical assistance from individuals with similar conditions or circumstances to achieve long-term recovery from psychiatric, alcohol, and/or other drug-related problems. It may be social, emotional or practical support but importantly this support is mutually offered and reciprocal, allowing peers to benefit from the support whether they are giving or receiving it.

The benefits of peer support are wide ranging for those receiving the support and for the mental health system as a whole. One of the benefits of peer support is the greater perceived empathy and respect that peer support participants are seen to have for each other. Peer support also has benefits of increased levels of self-esteem, confidence and positive feelings that they are doing well. Participants often experience an increase in their ability to cope mental health problems. Peer Support also benefits the health system as a whole as it can lead to decrease in hospital admissions for those taking part.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.

Only you can decide whether you want to give Alcoholics Anonymous a try—whether you think it can help you. We who are in A.A. came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We still hated to admit that we could never drink safely. Then we heard from other A.A. members that we were sick. (We thought so for years!) We found out that many people suffered from the same feelings of guilt and loneliness and hopelessness that we did. We found out that we had these feelings because we had the disease of alcoholism. We decided to try to face up to what alcohol had done to us. Here are some of the questions we tried to answer honestly. If we answered YES to four or more questions, we were in deep trouble with our drinking. See how you do. Remember, there is no disgrace in facing up to the fact that you have a problem.

The Art of Recovery

Creating art is a very effective way to stimulate the brain and anyone can do it.   The Mental Health Benefits of Art Are for Everyone.  There are a lot of misconceptions floating around about art.  Some think you have to be creating paintings or sculptures to be considered a real artist.  Others believe that you are either born with talent — or not.  Many are afraid that since they aren’t very good at something, there is no point and they won’t get any benefit from doing it.  Another myth is that you have to work with an art therapist to get any therapeutic benefit from doing art.  But we are all born with an innate desire to express ourselves and art encompasses a wider range of activities than you may have ever imagined.  Here are some of the best ways creative expression can benefit your brain and mental health to make you a happier, healthier person:

  • Art Reduces Stress and Anxiety 
  • Art Increases Positive Emotions and Feelings
  • Art Encourages Creative Thinking
  • Art Boosts Self-Esteem and Provides a Sense of Accomplishment
  • Art Increases Brain Connectivity and Plasticity
  • Art Increases Empathy, Tolerance, and Feelings of Love
  • Art Eases the Burden of Chronic Health Conditions
  • Art Improves Quality of Life for Dementia Patients
