Here at SimpleSteps Addiction Recovery we strive to help you replace your addiction with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus promises, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” I have personally seen Him do this in my life and the lives of many others. At SimpleSteps, you will find a team of leaders who understand your pain and struggles. They will encourage and guide you to a new hope and ultimately a new life in Christ. I look forward to seeing you grow in your faith and recovery in the weeks, months, and years to come.”
