Recovery Programs for Addiction

The Way Forward Residential Recovery Program is for men and women seeking to break free of the bondage of drug and alcohol addiction.

Through coaching, spiritual guidance, and education, the program provides participants the tools they need to move from a life of self-abuse and destruction to a life lived in recovery, punctuated by grace.

The 12-15 month program includes:

  • Individualized recovery plans
  • Community engagement
  • Biblical and evidence-based classes
  • Vocational support and training

Mending Wings Adult Learning Center

A crucial element of the Recovery Program, the Learning Center makes sure each participant has an individualized learning plan.

Staff and volunteers teach classes and tutor on a wide range of academic subjects at varying levels. Participants have the opportunity to strengthen their current Math, Language, and Writing skills to prepare for a return to the workplace, in addition to selecting from various electives. GED-prep and assistance with resumes and job applications is also offered.

Do you have a passion for teaching? Volunteer instructors and tutors are always needed and welcomed.

A Learning center volunteer created The Butterfly Fund to purchase educational software and materials and GED practice tests to assist program participants. Will you help it grow? Simply click The Butterfly Fund on the Donation page to designate your gift.


The Rescue Mission Art Studio offers therapeutic art classes and workshops where creative expression and self-discovery are cultivated and nurtured through art making. This is not art therapy but creating art as part of a self-care and wellness program, to help participants become more connected with what they are thinking and feeling. Participants will learn new skills using a wide variety of materials and techniques.
