Recovery Program

Redemption. Recovery. Restoration.

Due to COVID-19, our Intake program is now taking in new guests, please see below for the new process. We hope to resume regular services soon.

The Recovery Program

The Las Vegas Rescue Mission Recovery Program is a Christian-based, 6-12 month, residential drug and alcohol treatment program for both men and women, which includes a structured living component and work therapy. Our program is staffed by state licensed clinicians and interns that offer clinical assessments, individual therapy, group therapy, case management and discharge planning.

Program residents learn:

How to address triggers, relapse awareness, healthy boundaries, emotional wellness, anger and stress management, lectures on the disease process, proper communication skills, conflict resolution, as well as other pertinent information related to recovery.

Program residents are provided:

Room and board, essential hygiene items and clothing, and 3-meals per day.

The Las Vegas Rescue Mission is the only on-demand treatment center that provides services to all individuals regardless of their financial means or insurance status, serving hundreds of individuals each year. During the last phase of the program clients are expected to locate stable housing, employment and continuing recovery resources in order to successfully transition into the community.

They may take care of any major concerns including medical, mental, legal, etc. during this time.
