We offer five nights of emergency shelter to just about anyone who does not pose a danger to themselves or others. During this time we encourage our guests to apply for our long-term restoration program.
The first 15 weeks of the program our participants work at clearing their minds of drugs and alcohol; begin to trust others; identify healthy relationship boundaries; live in community; explore relationship with God and His power to bring change; admit underlying problems and powerlessness to change.
Our program participants are set up with a mentor from a local church that meets with them weekly as they build healthy relationships.
Continue identifying healthy relationship boundaries; acknowledge pain that drugs and alcohol were meant to numb; confront lies they’ve believed about God, the world and themselves; take a moral inventory of past behaviors and confess failures; investigate finding significance in Christ.
Dive deeply into relationships and past wounds; learn advanced recovery tools, relapse triggers, conflict resolution, and healthy alternatives; examine the meaning of identity in Christ; explore aptitudes and dreams with regard to finding meaningful work and being a valuable employee; compose an accountability team and support outside the Mission community
Take risks and practice living life in a new way; have freedom to make mistakes in a safe and healing environment where forgiveness and acceptance are also practiced; face feelings and share them with trusted people; continue to explore and claim identity in Christ; begin Business Practicum.
Start educational process of the restoration program that includes workforce development and life-skills training. If reentering the workforce start business practicum with local business.
Transition; pursue or maintain work/school/church; reside in community outside the Medford Gospel Mission. Take part in aftercare recovery programs. Take part in annual anniversary dinner to celebrate successes achieved after program completion.
