1. The student must not require medical assistance
The Residential Center isn’t a medical facility and does not have the capability of assuring medical assistance. We do not administer any kind of rehab treatment. The future student must be physically rehabilitated and must have a health state that allows him to participate in all of the activities of the program.
He must not need regular medical evaluations (ie: monthly medical check-ups) or permanent medical treatment. Nevertheless, exceptions can be made (ie. epilepsy). If the health state of the student continues to get worse during their stay in the program, a family member will be notified and the student will need to see a doctor. All short term treatment (ie. a cold) can be administered at the center.
2. The student must have a strong motivation to escape addiction
An important condition in accepting a student into the program is his motivation. He is here because he wants to be here. The Center is not the best option for those who are not really determined to leave a life of drugs. The program is intense and has a lot of guidelines. We are not a detention center, nor do we use coercion methods. Recovery is based on the will and desire of the student.
3. Before admission, the student must come with the results of the following tests: HIV, HVB, HVC, pulmonary radiogram
Regarding those who are HIV infected, they will come with the recommendation of an expert, which will matter in the decision whether or not he would be accepted into the program.
4. Consent for the following:
- The duration of the program is one year, split into 5 phases.
- The student only remains in contact with the immediate family.
- The student is not allowed to leave the Center unaccompanied, before being in the program for 6 months (starting phase 4).
- There are guidelines and a well established protocol. None of the daily activities are optional. The daily activities include classes, life skills activities, work projects, mentorships, recreation and sport (ie. gym, soccer field).
- Each bedroom has 4 beds.
- Self-sustaining system. Cleaning, cooking, and repairs are made by the students.
- Submit to the staff’s indications. Recovery is based on collaboration and consensus.
- No smoking is allowed.
- The program’s objective is to obtain a life without drugs and the acquire the following: responsibility, the ability to make good decisions, an authentic faith, selflessness, viewing work as a value, a positive self-image, relationships and problem solving skills.
- An important part of the recovery model is an authentic faith in God. The religious orientation is pentecostal. Our objective is not for the student to change his religion, but to acquire a living faith, that results in a long-term change.
Spiritual transformation isn’t just about religious acts, but about a personal change in values, motivation and character. The key to the proven success of this residential program is represented by the spiritual aspect, based on Christian faith.
The religious activities are part of the daily program (chapel, Bible reading time, prayer time and participating in weekly church services). Students are taught how to live out their faith and apply it in everyday life. Participation in the spiritual activities and church services are not optional.
This method is related to our philosophy of a holistic approach of the addict – the physical, emotional, socio-professional and spiritual..
The interested person will obtain an interview and based on that interview, it will be decided whether he is or is not accepted into the program.
