Residential Program

A Christ-Centered Recovery Program for Men

His Way residents participate in a challenging and comprehensive 9-month program centered around Biblical principles and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Creating lasting recovery from addiction is a complex problem. At His Way, we help men identify and address the root causes of their addiction and teach them the skills and habits they need to live productive, independent, drug-free lives.

9-month Program Overview

The men at His Way receive increasing independence and responsibilities as they progress through the 3 stages of the program.

His Way Volunteer

The First Stage covers the first 30 days a resident is at His Way. During this very focused time, residents do not work outside the program and interaction with the “outside world” (even family) is very limited. Mornings are filled with recovery classes, Bible classes, life skills classes, and counseling sessions. The afternoons are spent working around the facility or at His Way’s thrift store, in individual study, and performing volunteer work in the community.

Pairing Residents with Licensed Counselors

Once a resident has completed their first 30 days at His Way, he will be assigned to a licensed counselor whom they will see on a regular basis until graduation. Currently, all of our 9-month residents are seeing licensed counselors regularly, in addition to the pastoral counseling and mentoring we provide. Learn more about our licensed counselors on our Staff & Leadership page.

As residents transition to The Second Stage, His Way staff and volunteers help them create resumes, submit job applications, and find employment through our network of business partners. His Way provides daily transportation to and from the workplace and regular drug testing. Residents in this phase continue in classes designed to strengthen their relationships and deepen their Biblical understanding.

His Way Graduation

The Third Stage encompasses the remainder of the time in the program before graduation (typically months 3 to 9). During this time, a resident continues to focus on his recovery and development while working a full-time job and taking on some leadership responsibilities within the program. Before a resident can successfully graduate from His Way, he will have a good job, some money in the bank, and a long-term plan for ongoing recovery. Residents in all phases attend nightly classes at His Way on a variety of topics including life skills development, financial management, relationship building, anger management, and professional development.
