Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible to participate in Reach Recovery’s Programs?
Adults 18 and older who suffer from drug and alcohol dependencies and their family members. Participants must demonstrate a desire to receive help and actively engage in their recovery. We currently offer two tracks. One track is for the individual battling chemical addiction and the other track is for the family members of the chemically dependent.
Are you a residential program?
We are a non-residential program for the 75% of addicts functioning in society who have jobs and family that they cannot leave for an extended period of time. If you are interested in a long-term residential program please check out our recommended men’s and women’s facilities under the Programs tab.
Where are you located?
We are located in Greenville and we serve within the Pitt County area of Eastern NC.
Do you charge a fee for your services?
Our small groups are free, but our one-on-one sessions require a small fee. Participants are not refused help due to lack of funds. Financial arrangements will be discussed during the assessment interview. No insurance is required.
Individuals – $25/per session, Two or more – $40/per session
Does someone need to be a Christian to participate in Reach Recovery?
Absolutely not! Individuals from any and all faith backgrounds are welcome to participate. However, it must be understood that we use the Bible as the main source of our classroom teaching.
Do you offer state certified counseling?
Our whole philosophy of recovery is based upon Christian recovery principles and methods while upholding to the standard and code of ethics according to the jurisdiction of church. Instruction and principles taught are conducted in accordance with Scripture. We have licensed Christian ministers as well as staff holding a master’s counseling certificate in substance abuse. Employing state-licensed counselors would be in conflict with our responsibility under the church to pray with and use scripture with participants. We are members of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and adhere to their code of ethics.
Secular Approach vs. Christian Approach?
Even though the Christian method may implement basic psychological principles, the Bible is recognized and acknowledged as the final authority in the recovery process. Although there are numerous secular rehabilitation programs, Reach Recovery is focused on providing a Christ-centered regeneration program addressing transformation of the mind and renewing of the spirit. We know that Christ is the permanent solution to living free. If participants are in need of professional clinical treatment, Reach Recovery will encourage such participants to seek out further help. We highly encourage chemically dependent individuals to pursue medical supervision when detoxing from addictive substance.
Do you adhere to a confidentiality protocol?
Information disclosed in individual mentoring and accountability sessions will be held confidential as the Bible or the State requires. If we find that someone is in imminent danger to themselves, we will contact 911 or take the person to the closest emergency room. In certain circumstances the Bible requires that facts be disclosed to selected others (Matt. 18:15-20). If your church leadership should inquire, we will disclose to them only that information, which we believe, is necessary for them to effectively and biblically fulfill their responsibility to shepherd you. However, your mentor or accountability coach will inform you, if possible, of such decisions beforehand.
