The Harvest House Addiction Recovery Center opened its doors on
February 1, 2006 in Moncton after a house fire caused extensive
damage to our men's residence. Turning tragedy into triumph we
rebuilt with a new vision to help those with addictions break free
of a destructive lifestyle. Our program provides recovering addicts
with a supportive network of mature believers with whom they can
grow in faith and friendship through their struggles and victories.
Mornings are centered on Bible study and Biblically-based recovery
programs which give participants great opportunities to meet the
Lord, themselves and each other in an atmosphere of sincerity and
Participants are encouraged to be transparent with each other
and share in the struggles and difficulties they are facing. There
is support not only from program leaders but also from other
participants on the road to recovery. In this way a caring
community is fostered under the guidance of mature overseers.
Phase One is 90 days in length and the individual will
participate in a pre screening with one of our Recovery
Coordinators, prior to being accepted into the program. Phase one
covers a variety of topics and everyone in the program is expected
to attend group sessions. Some of the topics covered in Phase one
- Serenity: A companion for twelve step recovery: an
extremely useful teaching tool combining the recognized 12 steps
and the New Testament.
- Celebrate Recovery - John Baker - Saddleback Church: an
in depth, highly detailed recovery program developed in conjunction
with Pastor Rick Warren that parallels familiar 12 step programs
with 8 principles from the "Sermon on the Mount".
- Better Together / Forty Days of Community: the entire
premise of this teaching is that we cannot recover, heal or even
learn by ourselves, this is especially true of someone with an
- Living Free / Turning Point: video based training to
develop Christ-centered small groups that help people prevent or
overcome life-controlling problems.
- The Final Freedom / Pioneering Sexual Addiction: sexual
addiction is most likely the hardest addiction for anyone to
overcome much less even talk about. The final freedom is described
as a place beyond the guilt and shame of the history of sexual
addiction found only after much hard work and humility.
Upon completion of phase one individuals will begin phase two.
Phase two is three to nine months in length depending upon the
needs of the individual. Various programs are in place whereby men
can approach and experience freedom and victory from addictions.
Mornings are centered on group devotional periods in which the men
take turns sharing the Scriptures that have impacted them with the
rest of the group. Discussions and prayers occur spontaneously in
such morning meetings, a great Word-centered way to start off each
day! From morning devotions, the group then attends a ½ hour
to hour-long discipleship class, led by mature Christians who are
sensitive to the needs and challenges of the group, focused on
practical application of New Testament Scriptures and hope to their
lives. Two additional book-centered programs are based on the
Celebrate Recovery series by Rick Warren and John Baker and the
well-known book, Victory Over the Darkness by Neil T. Anderson.
After the first successful month in the Recovery Program, during
which time the men do not leave the premises without an
accountability partner, participants who can do so are encouraged
to make good use of their free time by seeking gainful
Phase three is centered on successful reintegration of
individuals into society. Individuals in this phase of recovery are
advised to continue participating in programs, and are encouraged
to maintain their connections with accountability partners within
the believing community.
We believe that with God's help and the support of a caring,
committed community many will be set free of their addictions. If
you or someone you know needs help breaking free from an addiction
