HOLDFAST RECOVERY - OUR STORY
At Holdfast Recovery, our mission is to deliver high quality treatment, that emphasizes clinical excellence and physical wellness, and most importantly Christian values.
HISTORY OF HOLDFAST
The term Holdfast is originally a nautical term borrowed from the Dutch “houd vast” (hold tight) referring to the importance of securely gripping a ship’s rigging. In todays world Holdfast means to bear down, grit it out and stay the course. At Holdfast Recovery we want to teach our clients to holdfast and be anchored in Christ as he will never fail them. The struggles the clients have had with addiction and trauma can only be solved through the renewing of their minds and spirits. For many, this involves addressing past traumatic experiences. For others, this means being honest with themselves for the first time. For all, this involves putting their faith in God as the one to set them free from their struggles.
Holdfast Recovery works with local churches and pastors to provide unique opportunities that allow each of our clients to strengthen their relationship with Jesus. Clients will receive daily devotionals that they will be able to use to connect themselves spiritually. This devotional works well for new believers as well as those who are just looking to strengthen their relationship with Jesus. In doing this, clients are able to incorporate what they are learning in the Bible with what they are discussing with their substance abuse concerns. During the Holdfast Recovery program, clients will attend two weekly Bible studies at the home of a local pastor and an in house bible study. They will be able to build relationships and learn about Christ during these weekly gatherings. They will also attend a Christian 12-step recovery meeting every week. This meeting will continue to connect them with other believers as they continue forward on their journey. Along with these meetings they will be attending church.
