In this engaging workshop, Founder of Recovery for the City/ Recovery for Life, Paul Hardy, will present the combined therapy of the Twelve Steps, prayer for inner healing, and solution focused therapy for those who suffer from addictions.
The presenter will discuss a Christ-centered, transformational model of recovery from addictions and compulsive behaviors, historic woundedness, and life-altering habits using a faith-based option for court-ordered individuals to seek restitution and a new lifestyle. A result of partnerships which have combined the years of experience and practice of several non-profit organizations (Recovery for Life, People in Need, Onesimus Ministries, Transitions: Home for Hope and others) as well as local churches have provided this results oriented model.
