Some wonder how God’s ordained and consecrated could be in need of such services. These people who serve God and the Church are people first, and they are vulnerable to illness and disease as another person is. (Addiction is a disease of the brain.) We welcome them warmly and are committed to walking with them on their recovery journey.

I believe the one imperative to happy, permanent, effective sobriety for anyone is the simple virtue of gratitude.
