Penfield Addiction Ministries was organized to provide a Christian addiction ministry. Penfield is a Baptist oriented religious organization and operates on Christian principles but does not insist that clients accept the faith of any particular denomination.
The concept of helping men and women with addictions by motivating them through biblical teachings is at the heart of the program. The program is aimed at helping and healing the whole person. The adopted theme of “reclaiming men and women with addictions through Christ and Christian love” expresses the purpose of Penfield Addiction Ministries. Penfield is a voluntary partnership ministry between local Baptist Associations, the Georgia Baptist Association, and the Georgia Baptist Convention.
Substance Abuse Counseling
Penfield treats all substance use disorders. We carefully balance evidenced-based counseling methods, spirituality, AA/NA Principles, and education to provide care for our clients.
Sexual Addiction Tracks
Although sex is considered a natural part of life, when it is taken to an extreme, it can produce negative consequences. If compulsive sexual behavior is not treated, individuals may experience intense guilt and eventually develop low self-esteem. For this reason, we offer a sexual addiction track as part of our curriculum.
Our ministry is rooted in the belief that recovery from addictive behaviors can be achieved through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. As a result, clients have access to ordained Clergy and trained Lay Leaders to address their spiritual concerns and questions.
Working in a therapeutic group environment is a great way to experiment with new behaviors. The social support offered by group services allows you to see that you are not alone in this journey.
Individual counseling is a treatment intervention based on one-on-one conversations with a trained clinician. Through distinct treatment modalities, individual and group counseling can complement each other, facilitating profound intrapersonal and interpersonal benefits.
Substance abuse puts family members under a great deal of stress, disrupting routines and causing unsettling or even frightening experiences. We strive to help the entire family by facilitating the healing process and addressing problematic behaviors caused by the addiction.
Individualized Treatment Planning
We take time to get to know you on a personal level in order to provide the most personalized treatment plan possible. Comprehensive treatment plans help to pinpoint triggers that lead to substance abuse and offer techniques to manage these triggers once you leave the facility.
An aftercare plan is a personalized strategy for coping with the challenges you are likely to face after leaving treatment. After helping you identify your specific triggers, we will develop a plan together that will assist you in remaining proactive with daily routines, activities that help maintain sobriety, and physical and emotional self-care.
When individuals complete inpatient treatment, some will require additional help to maintain long-term sobriety. There are numerous options from which to choose, but what option is best for you or your loved one? With over 40-years of experience in the field of substance abuse treatment, we can help provide clients with the available options that will most benefit them.
