Treatment and Staff
Brunswick provides treatment for clients with alcohol and substance use disorders be it prescription or “street drugs.” The facility utilizes a Christian-based approach to recovery rooted in spiritual work, mentorship and supportive community of peers. During the first phase of care, residents engage in daily Bible study, church service and a deep-dive study into the 12-step method. Clients accept their faults and make peace with the harm they have inflicted in their past. After six weeks in the program residents are reviewed by both the Brunswick team and their peers to determine if significant progress has been made to move into the second phase, where as a senior resident he then becomes responsible for mentoring newer clients. While the length of care varies depending on the progress of the individual, Brunswick usually lasts between six and 12 weeks. Following completion of the residential program, clients are encouraged to return as volunteers and as 12-step sponsors.
The Brunswick team is led by a pastor and comprises a director, assistant director and a team of volunteers. If needed, clients are asked to bring up to three months of medication.
