We made a decision

We know that the 12 step program is a spiritual program. This does not mean we have to be religious but it does mean that we cannot continue to live life on our own terms and conditions. We have to surrender to a process. 

Jahara Treatment Centre is a Christian Centre but we are open and welcoming of all. The Christian principles are taught purely through the way that we live. It is each persons own journey and they are free to take whatever direction they choose. 

The Gathering Place church community is a great support to our residents. Welcoming them into the community and serving them and their needs.
