Recovery residence for female addicts in Emporia, Ks.
To provide a spiritual, life-changing, and empowering environment where recovering addicts can discover their God-given potential, establish a healthy intentional lifestyle, master life skills, and become self-sufficient.
Drug addiction affects all aspects of life. Addicts are often told that they only need to change one thing - EVERYTHING! That type of change is all-inclusive and thus, a holistic approach improves the likelihood of successful recovery from active addiction. Change and transition are extremely difficult. In the struggle for life change and healing, addicts are often without suitable housing and an empowering environment as they attempt massive life changes while still living in the same drug-infested environment.
Addicts need a safe place to recover, grow, and discover. Addicts need to create an entirely new lifestyle where they can avoid vulnerable situations, pursue new friendships, and develop a meaningful relationship with God. Drug recovery and sober living are possible in Emporia Kansas.
The only way to recover from addiction is literally changing everything (people, places, and things) and re-inventing life from the ground up. Christ should be the solid rock on which they stand and should be the cornerstone of their new life. Addicts need help in discovering how to build their lives in Christ.
Empower House Ministries Inc. (nonprofit) was founded to provide addicts with an empowering environment where they can establish a new lifestyle while discovering their identity as a child of God through the power and hope of Christ.
The collective church can have an active role by providing a spiritual basis and supporting for addicts in their recovery. Our clinic counselors will be able to fill this unique need by investing in the people that we serve.
In addition to providing a safe place for addicts in recovery, the goal is to teach essential life skills, so that the addict can achieve independence and self-sufficiency.
We provide a safe haven / sober living where residents can experience a new lifestyle – one where they can visualize a new future, take responsibility for past weaknesses, and develop strength/stability as they prepare for independent living.
Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. 24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. Ephesians 4:23
Visualizing the person that God is calling them to be is essential for spiritual growth and recovery. We encourage residents to discover their God-given potential and the unique plan that God has for them.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Freedom from addiction often means a complete change in lifestyle and intentionally seeking new healthy routines, new habits, and new peers.
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15
Community volunteers will teach essential life skills such as budgeting, self-worth, and Godly relationships and parenting. Our goal is for residents to not merely learn new life skills, but to master and perfect those life skills which will be needed for independence.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21
Through a deep meaningful relationship with God, new life skills, an intentional lifestyle, and new sense of identity, our residents will be ready for independent and self-sufficient living.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:15
Recovering addicts thrive when they are surrounded by a community of peers that will support their spiritual growth and recovery.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds. Hebrews 10:24
We would be offering clinics to help residents with life skills and guidance on key areas of concern. Possibilities include:
Clinic counselors are from the community and local churches. We would be seeking people that would offer regular clinics, but also be available for one-on-one appointments. We would be seeking a teacher and mentor that is willing to invest in people – rather than merely teaching a class.
If you'd like to teach and empower recovering addicts, please contact us to learn how to be involved.
If you are skilled in planning, we'd love to have your help with strategy.
We are currently raising funds and seeking grants. We need your financial support.
