Guest House Daily Reflections

St. Bernardine of Siena, Pray for us. John 15:12-17 John tells Christians of all times and places that the heart of Christianity is love’s self-forgetfulness and total dedication. John tells us that love has its origin in God. In fact, the person without love does not know God. Paradoxically, it is only by knowing God that we can genuinely love, and it is only by loving that we can come to know God. Let us pray for the people of Ukraine.

Continuing Care & recovery

Our care for guests extends
beyond our campus.

A sustainable recovery plan is vital to success. The work of recovery begins in earnest when the client leaves our residential treatment. That’s where continuing care comes in. The return to life in ministry can be overwhelming, especially early in recovery. The Guest House plan offers a phased approach designed to reinforce the application of the clients’ learned skills and healthy habits in their daily life. The continuing care program encompasses both formal and informal interventions, opportunities to engage in ongoing didactic discussion groups with religious peers, as well as one-to-one counseling. Continuing care provides a way for those in recovery to share their challenges, as well as their successes along the way. Through planned, ongoing support, we offer encouragement for those who are in recovery and the opportunity to maintain steady progress and spiritual growth. And we can assure the leaders of the communities our clients are returning to that they will be supported by a thoughtful continuum of care.
