Our long term vision has always been to have 50-100 acres situated somewhere in Central Georgia. We are currently under contract for 100 acres that will house our transition program. There are existing structures on the property that can house our men. Some of them will be dedicated to working the land on the farm while others will work in the surrounding communities. We would eventually like to operate some small businesses on the property that will generate income for the ministry and allow us to become self-sustaining. Our transition program capacity is currently ten men.
We eventually hope to also run a day one program that will accept men straight out of detox and will be located in a neighboring city of our transition home. For the day one program, we envision boarding houses that can hold up to 40 men at any given time, a dining hall, conference center, office space, counseling quarters & classrooms. We also envision a recovery community that will be known not as “bad part” of town but a “good part” of town where recovery is valued and walked out every day. We envision our transition home and eventual recovery center becoming a leader for recovery in our State and eventually in the South East. Our long-term vision is to have a “Community” of Recovery that helps hundreds each year & is an asset to the communities we serve.
Our entire program is modeled after No Longer Bound, in Cumming, Georgia (founded by Mike Harden) that has successfully operated for over thirty years. NLB is like a big brother to CRRM and is a strategic partner in this work. Their program works, our program works and we are honored to use the same principles and curriculum that we know helps instill lasting recovery.
