The Way: A Brief History
With alcoholism and drug addiction growing to epidemic proportions in America, God has placed a vision on the hearts of two men in Huntsville, Alabama to provide a Christ-centered solution to this problem.
After completing a Christian based recovery program himself, Doug Stogner wanted to begin something like he had experienced in his home town of Huntsville. In March of 2007, he with a few friends began to create what has come to be known as The Way. The Way is a Christ-centered residential recovery facility for men.
With a grand vision, but limited resources; God brought Doug in contact with Clyde Jones, who with a similar vision, had recently acquired a beautiful three acre residential facility in northeast Huntsville. Clyde offered the thirteen bedroom, two story residence to Doug to house The Way's ministry. And so in June of 2007, The Way opened its doors to the community and invited men passionate for recovery to come discover Jesus' way to complete wholeness.
The Way teaches Christ-centered recovery through vocational training and experience. Each resident will be employed in order to create a forum for training as well as help them become self-supporting residence of The Way. Under the direction of Heritage Homes, a non-profit 501 (C) 3 organization, The Way continues to offer Christ-centered recovery to men throughout North Alabama.
