Bradford Health Services Launches Christian-Based Addiction Recovery Program, Steps of Faith
This article originally appeared in Birmingham Christian Family Magazine.
Bradford Health Services opened its doors over 40 years ago. Since then, they have become one of the Southeast’s largest providers of alcohol and addiction treatment. The decades of success have not stopped them from continuing their effort to find new ways to walk the road to recovery.
Introducing Steps of Faith
Bradford introduced its new faith-based addiction recovery program called Steps of Faith in June. As the only clinically-focused Christian rehab program in Alabama, Steps of Faith aims to offer a new beginning for people with an interest in faith-based recovery. The program is built on three pillars of recovery:
- Biblical, Christ-Centered Application
- Clinical Integrity through Licensed Christian Counselors
- A 12 Step Model
Located in Warrior, Ala. at the Limestone Ridge Facility, the Steps of Faith program uses these core values to help people build a connection with God as they learn how to recover from addiction. Pastor David Padgett C.R.C., who has worked in the field of recovery for over a decade, will run the program. “Here at Steps of Faith, we have a passion for walking alongside those very early in the recovery process and helping them understand that God’s not mad at you, as a matter of fact, He’s never been more ready to have a relationship with you,” said Pastor Padgett. With Steps of Faith, you can build a relationship with God as you take the path to recovery.
