Bill Nicks helped with Project Rescue's transition into an in-house program in 2007.

The bad news is, drug and alcohol abuse damages the brain. The good news is, once the abuse stops, the brain begins to heal. A healthy diet and exercise help the brain to heal.
We look to God, the Bible and the church for the answer. Spirituality is essential to the healing process!
The other side of our program is to help each man to find a job he loves or to go back to school to pursue a career. Our goal is for him to become financially independent with his own bank account, driving his own car and living in his own home. Our objective is also for him to be reconciled with his family.
The recovery process we use is community based with control. As our program members live in the community in our apartments, we control their social activities. As each man works in the community, he turns his paycheck over to Project Rescue. In time, he assumes control of his life a little at a time. When a member relapses, he starts over and begins the process to freedom again.
The three periods of recovery we recognize are stabilization, assimilation and outpatient.
Stabilization - This is a period of physical, emotional and mental stabilization. The program member is not allowed to work in the community and his travel is restricted. He also spends more time in Bible classes, 1-on-1 counseling sessions and exercise activities. The objective is to keep him safe while his brain heals.
Assimilation – During this period the program member is helped to assimilate back into the church, his family, and the community. When he reaches this stage, he is allowed to work a job or attend school in the community. During this time, he is encouraged to pay his own program fee and save his money. The goal during this period is for him to save for his own transportation and housing. The objective is for him to be spiritually strong & financially independent.
Outpatient –This period typically covers the last three months of a man's program. Outpatient is also for men who have not lost total control of their addiction. While still in the program, the program member is allowed to live in his own home in an area we approve. He is given full control of his finances. He is given freedom of travel. He is still required to attend nightly classes & all church services. He must also submit to random drug tests.
