Genesis Program

Genesis is our in-house relapse prevention program where participants learn to develop new coping tools, healthy relationships, personal accountability, spiritual growth, and community. Rather than trying to overcome a lifelong addiction in thirty to ninety days, about as long as insurance is willing to pay most recovery centers, our program gives participants at least a year in the program to help turn their life around.

We know that addictions to drugs, alcohol, gambling, eating, and co-dependent relationships are coping mechanisms that people develop to not deal with painful thoughts, memories, and feelings. Genesis helps individuals uncover what lead to their addiction, and find new coping skills for dealing with their past hurt.

Genesis focuses on 5 areas of development:

  • Education – classes on personal, spiritual, professional, and financial development
  • 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
  • Physical – meeting with physicians, therapists, and medical professionals
  • Recovery Worship
  • Lighthouse Church
  • First United Methodist.
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 to care for this vulnerable population.

A staff registered nurse insures that medical recovery needs are addressed onsite rather than through hospitalization. This process reduces healthcare costs by minimizing uninsured and unnecessary emergency room visits.
