A church based detox programme to help people escape from alcohol and drug addiction through integrated medical, spiritual and community support.
There are three principle elements or ‘KEYS’ to this programme:
Teams are trained and equipped to support clients before, during and after detox using medical protocols which generally involve the clients own GP. It is the GP (or drug clinic staff) who will organise tests and prescribe the necessary medication.
KEYS Community Detox is primarily aimed at helping those who are already on, or who are open to a spiritual route to recovery. Clients are supported through a Christian recovery programme that uses the 12-steps adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous to address issues that are very often at the root of addiction. See below for more on the 12-steps.
Community Support is the vital third ‘KEY’ to the programme. Having the support of a loving community is a massive boost to anyone seriously wanting to make the lifestyle changes necessary for long-term freedom from drugs and alcohol.
