Many women are trapped in a world of hopelessness, held in the bondage of drug, alcohol addiction, or destructive lifestyles resulting in a cycle of self-destruction. Mary’s Song Restoration Center for Women offers women an opportunity to permanently change their lives by the Power of God.
Mary’s Song is a twelve to eighteen month faith based residential drug rehabilitation program. Our program, consists of five phases in which the women receive a foundation of faith in Jesus Christ, equipping them with the necessary life skills to become productive members of society.
In the first and second phase the Women will spend six months completing 14 group study books. The third and fourth phase will focus on dealing with anger, fear, conflict management. They will also begin integrating into the community; by beginning to be a part of life groups and connecting them with a leader in the Church.
The fifth phase of the program is an additional six moths which continues to prepare graduates by allowing them to begin school, get a job, enter discipleship ship training school, or go to bible college. The fifth phase is optional but is also vital for personal growth, goal setting and learning how to make healthy decisions.
In the first and second phase, the women will work the duration of the program, and work on building healthy work ethics. They are not allowed to have outside employment and will not be paid while in Mary’s Song.
During the day, first and second phase students spend four hours a day in the classroom studying the principles of the bible in a group setting, and other books that are chosen by pastors and teacher.
