Christian 12 Step Program
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is God’s way of preparing us in every way….” (II Timothy 3:16-17)

Second, a supernatural power is necessary to allow a person to overcome alcohol abuse. Third, God is able and willing to help humans overcome alcohol addiction, but only if they seek God’s help. The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous has its roots in the Bible.
Clients and Pacific Hills staff members address addiction from each aspect, including biological and physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. Recognizing the person as a being whose parts all need to be healed, we treat vigorously and completely. This is urgent because drug and alcohol addictions can be fatal. To treat holistically, our skilled professionals are trained in diverse areas including psychology, medicine, behavior counseling and theology. We stand by our client throughout the recovery process to energize their body, mind and soul, and to
