Saving Grace Ministries is a non-profit Christian Renewal Center for women struggling with drug and alcohol addictions. Our program is 6 months and is based on the biblical aspects of recovery.


Through spiritual, vocational and recreational interaction with others, a well-balanced and practical lifestyle is developed which lays a solid foundation for a successful drug free life. Individual and group sessions provide guidance in achieving sobriety while developing self-motivation, identification and confidence in each resident’s life.


The program takes commitment and willingness by each resident to seek God’ s purpose for her life. Before one can recover from addiction she must be willing to surrender her life to God. A spiritual transformation can only take place when the individual is ready to change and realize that their life is not working by their own will.

Please contact Saving Grace Ministries for further information about our Ministry at 910-447-1099. All donations are tax deductible and can be mailed to the address listed above.

Medication Guidelines

Absolutely no psychiatric medications are allowed at Saving Grace Ministries.

Absolutely no prescription pain medications are allowed at Saving Grace Ministries.

Saving Grace Ministries is a Christian renewal center and not a medical facility. It has been our experience that some symptoms of depression and bipolar disorder are the same as drug/alcohol addiction. We are not stating that mental illness does not exist, nor do we have a stigma against mental illness.

Our Ministry is voluntary. If you feel you need psychiatric drugs to stay clean and sober or to treat other psychiatric problems our Ministry is not for you.

Please make sure you are weaned from any psychiatric medicine (by a medical professional) before coming to be a resident at Saving Grace Ministries. If you are unsure about whether you want to come off your medication, then our Ministry is not for you.

We are not mental health professionals. Please make the choice of coming off psychiatric medicines before you come to us. We cannot make that decision for you.

Thank you

God Bless
