Genesis Recovery Program

Our Genesis Recovery Program is a comprehensive faith-based residential drug and alcohol recovery program for men 18 years and older. The residential component of Genesis is a five-phase, twelve month minimum spiritual discipleship program. The program is designed to offer a safe, structured environment where individuals can focus on themselves, discover what led to their addiction, identify relapse triggers and build a solid recovery plan. Life-skills classes, community-based mentoring, and spiritual guidance help guests lay the foundation for a bright and stable future, free from addiction.

Genesis focuses on the following five areas of development:

  • Physical – meeting with physicians, therapists, and medical professionals
  • Emotional – tools and exercises designed to help uncover deep-seated emotions and beliefs
  • Spiritual – involvement in biblical studies, daily devotions, and community church attendance
  • Social – working with sponsors, mentors, and leaders in the community
  • Educational – classes on personal, spiritual, professional and financial development
Medical Respite Program
Following a medical procedure or illness, people who are homeless are often fragile and lack support systems that would allow them to heal properly.

In 2015, New Life Center forged a partnership with Sanford Health to fill the gap of care for this vulnerable population. A registered nurse ensures that medical recovery needs are addressed onsite rather than through hospitalization. This process reduces healthcare costs by minimizing uninsured and unnecessary emergency room visits.
