Addiction Recovery

"THEY GENUINELY CARE."

Life transformation often requires overcoming addiction. Just ask Eugene.

“I had a drug and alcohol problem that I couldn’t control,” he says. “It ruined my ability to keep a job, a home, and relationships.”

Eugene ended up on the streets for years, until he found Atlanta Mission. “It’s a really uplifting place. They helped me learn that I don’t need to live this lifestyle. They help me go in the right direction. They genuinely care.”

Recovery services for men are offered at two Atlanta Mission locations — The Shepherd’s Inn downtown, and The Potter’s House in Jefferson, Georgia (near Athens).

The Potter’s House, located on a 550-acre farm, offers a long-term residential discipleship program to as many as 180 chemically addicted men. Services include therapeutic programs, GED training, computer literacy, and job training. The New Start dormitory features a computer lab and a community lounge, and the Client Life Center is a space for client education and community engagement. The barn-like structure houses classrooms and a multi-purpose room that acts as gym, chapel and gathering space.

For women, recovery services are offered through My Sister’s House.
