The Lodge is set deep in the rolling hills of Tennessee on a large property with acres of hiking trails and creeks that help create a very tranquil setting for recovery to begin. This residential treatment campus is designed to enable the student to establish a foundational relationship with Christ, and to be the launching point for their new life of freedom. Each student attends 3 classes a day, as well as support from an experienced life coach and an ordained addiction recovery pastor. There is an evaluation date set every four weeks to determine if the student is ready for the next level. If a student is maintaining a GPA of 80 – 100 for each level, then this phase can be completed in 4 months. The main purpose for The Lodge is to get the student started in his new walk of freedom with Christ, and to establish a strong relationship with Him, as well as establishing the root cause for the addiction. After completion of The Lodge, an assessment is performed to decide the next phase of the program.
