Bethesda Recovery

1010 Mary Street, Waycross, Georgia, 31503
At Bethesda Recovery, women learn how to break free from the ties of addiction by pursuing wholeness — physically, emotionally and spiritually. The faith-based rehab utilizes a biblical approach to recovery called the 12 Gates, which offers hope and healing through a spiritual encounter with Jesus. Therapy and life coaching is also offered in a safe and structured environment with 24/7 supervision.

Specialization

  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Individual Therapy

    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Bethesda being a spiritual program based on biblical principles, while also incorporating other recovery steps, caught my attention. Also, the constant contact with the director, building a "trusting" relationship before my arrival, helped my final decision. My experience was not an easy one to say the least but extremely effective at Bethesda Recovery. I gained a true identity, not per say an "addict" in recovery. I was and still being restored to hopes, dreams, family and friends. Learning about Jesus Christ, and the Twelve Gates( part of this program) I found life and a future. I continue to live drug/alcohol free, and still very much affiliated with Bethesda Recovery. I strive to give back as much as they have given me. A new life.

    Bethesda Recovery was founded with the individual in mind. They offer support to the women and give them a sense of belonging almost immediately.
