UGM LIFE Recovery

Although every person who enters the Mission encounters a culture of recovery and an opportunity to build a better life, some choose to enter our long-term residential recovery program to deal with overwhelming issues such as addiction, personal trauma, or a criminal record.


A holistic recovery program

Recognizing that permanent change takes place at the heart level, UGM’s 18 to 24-month-long recovery program (available, free of charge, for men, women, and children) addresses the underlying thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that drive destructive behaviors. In almost every case, the root causes of addiction and other destructive lifestyles are deeper than a 30-, 60-, or 90-day treatment program can reach.

Watch our Breaking the Cycle video for an in-depth look at UGM’s distinctive approach to holistic recovery.
