Christian Recovery Centers are non-profit faith based recovery centers growing throughout Georgia that believe in the healing power of Jesus Christ. We teach out of "The LIFE RECOVERY" Bible which is a biblical approach to the 12 step program. We offer 6-12 month inpatient/outpatient recovery programs that are designed to build close relationships and help men progress in life and in spirit. We had a vision to keep each center under 30 men to assure each have adequate time, energy and the love of Christ to transition from old ways of thinking to a hope and future of prosperity. (2 Corinthians 5:17) Doug Brooks (Financial Director) brings experience in peer support as a recovery coach and is C.A.R.E.S. certified.

Our Staff is continuing to grow rapidly and are chosen by their determination, spiritual growth and desire to put others needs above their own. All have been called by GOD according to his purpose. Each have a genuine love for our Lord and fellow man. Our goal is to help restore lives and families with the love of Christ.
