"I was looking for a faith-based facility and was blessed to meet Mrs. Odamah who happened to have a room available in a quiet, peaceful environment. The first time my daughter, my granddaughter and I met her, she prayed for us in the spirit. I saw Jesus in her, and knew that I had found the right place. I'm happy to live around clean and sober people which encourages my continued sobriety of 2 years and 5 months. Without this program and the women who helped save me, I don't know where I would be. I have a grateful heart and a safe place to be while I continue to build a relationship with my higher power and the wonderful people around me."
Praise be to God.
Sean M. went through the Eden Outreach Recovery Program and completed the two-year Young Adult Transitional Recovery Program living in the facility.
Sean is completely free from any addictive substance. He graduated from the program and now lives with his family. Reintegrating back to society, reuniting with family, and becoming a part of the adult workforce is a great attainment and our expectation for our clients.
Sean is currently taking prerequisites at a
county community college. Sean owns a car and drives himself to fulfill
daily commitments. It is amazing.
In the summer of 2014, I experienced the most damaging relapse to alcoholism and cocaine addiction that I have ever encountered. Having experienced a life threatening relapse, I found myself "broken" in virtually every area of my life. At a personal place of "complete brokenness,"
was was encouraged (i.e. by a group of church friends in recovery) to reach out
to Eden Outreach Inc. it was described to me as a Christ Centered/Transitional
Residence "covered by Christ" with an atmosphere of peace and
committed to a holistic approach to recovery for individuals who struggle with
chemical dependencies and life issues.
While at Eden Outreach Inc. , I have been given the opportunity to totally restructure and re-purpose my personal relationship with Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit. Today, I enjoy the personal and professional privilege of "living" complete in Christ while growing daily in my spiritual, emotional, physical , and financial identity and maturity in Jesus Christ. I believe it is best stated in John 8:36 which says, "If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." Thank You Jesus!
