First Step Towards Recovery

For He looked down from His holy height; from heaven the Lord gazed upon the earth, to hear the groaning of the prisoner; to set free those who were doomed to death. Psalm 102:19-20

Heartland is a haven of spiritual healing, a place that provides an environment to find God and His plan and purpose for life.

People lacking the fear of God find their life in a cycle of serving selfish desires, making wrong choices, and not having peace of mind and heart. Heartland Recovery Programs seek to introduce the concepts of Christian living and personal responsibility, helping men and women who are bound with life-controlling addictions, attitudes, and behavior.

Our Program

Heartland introduces the concepts of Christian living and personal responsibility. The Christian life is not abstract theology unconnected with life, but has practical implications, which will affect how we choose to behave each day. It is not enough merely to know the gospel, we must let it transform our lives and let God impact every aspect of our lives.

Heartland Men’s Recovery Program – Men who enroll in the 12-month program find themselves in an environment far removed from the temptations of the world, combined with the disciplines of hard work and a focus on Jesus Christ. The primary criteria for participating in the program is a willingness and desire to change.

Heartland Women’s Recovery Program – Ladies live in a home-like environment while focusing completely on their relationship with Jesus Christ. At the same time, they are trained in areas such as vocation, work ethic, child-rearing, and financial stewardship.
