Housed in the William H. Butler Help Center, Chosen Generation Community Counseling Center will provide a comprehensive therapeutic environment for men and women.
Our mission is to raise awareness and understanding about addiction and its impact on individuals, families, and communities. We are dedicated to providing resources, support, and education to help individuals overcome addiction, find recovery, and lead healthy, fulfilling lives. We strive to reduce the stigma surrounding addiction, promote early intervention and prevention, and advocate for accessible and effective treatment options. Through collaboration with other organizations, experts, and individuals affected by addiction, we aim to create a society that is compassionate, informed, and committed to supporting those in need.
To empower men and women to wholeness and develop mature individuals who are positioned for greatness in all areas of life. Through providing a New Life Empowerment (NLE) Group in a safe home-like environment. NLE offers the spiritual dimension as a change agent in combination with clinical therapies in an effort to facilitate sustained transformation and/or behavioral modification. Through providing a TIER 1 Spiritual Formation Model designed to systematically and methodically facilitate CHANGE! The model offers a schematic that navigates an individual from an idea to results. The Model can be employed for both spiritual and secular goals.
The overall goal of Tier 1 Recovery is to offer men and women with alcohol and substance addictions a comprehensive therapeutic milieu aimed at circumventing illicit thinking and behavior that contributes to addictive practices. CGCC proposes to address physical needs and long-term stability (through counseling, healthcare assistance and job skills training). The core of CGCC’s programming milieu sees treatment of addiction as a spiritual problem CGCC will create a safe place, a sanctuary for men and women in trouble. Through acceptance, discipline and structure, members gain the emotional and spiritual confidence to meet the challenges of life without depending on drugs and/or alcohol. CGCC will run a very structured program whereby each member will be expected to follow a rigorous schedule of daily activities, which includes: personal counseling, a spiritual-based curriculum of study, life skills, educational training, AA meetings and chore duties. Members are assigned a counselor who would develop treatment plans designed to focus on recovery, self discovery and maintenance. The emphasis on the spiritual dimension is supported by research that suggests individuals can return to the same environment that predisposed them to drug abuse, and be met with success. This is because of the internal change and transformation that the spiritual dimension affords.
