What does an average day look like in LifeChange: Recovery?
The goal of the Recovery phase is to help men achieve life stability, recover from various addictions, obtain employment, and move toward becoming a godly, self-sufficient man. It is an intensive, structured program designed to block out all negative influences and focus attention on hope for a better future.
