The opioid crisis and addiction in general, is skyrocketing without an end in sight. Everyone knows someone affected by addiction. One person - adults & children - is dying every 11 minutes from an accidental overdose. It's an insanity that doesn't have to continue! We believe, with everything in us, that we have the solution. We are seeking 2 additional volunteers for a seat on the Board of Directors for our Christian non-profit ministry. Candidates must be a Bible believing born again Christian with a heart for people in addictions. Meetings are held exclusively online.
We are an online Christian drug & alcohol recovery program. We are now working on ways to engage those who want a faith based program and want to recover from their home via telerecovery. We have also begun reaching out to organizations all over the US to let them know what we're doing and for referrals.
The co-founders are certified teachers of the Adult & Teen Challenge PSNC curriculum, which is the main focus of our what is done. In addition, we add focused Christian life coaching, Biblical counseling, Mental Health Coaching, group coaching, peer activities, activities that pay it forward, and worship and praise, We are also planning to further develop the retreat to being a community outreach in addiction awareness and prevention, as well as a day retreat for recovery.

*** If you understand Board protocol or have been a board member before, it is definitely a plus, but not necessary.
Although this is a volunteer position on our nonprofit board of directors, please be prepared to take it to heart as though it were a paid position. None of us are paid in the ministry.

Recovery Room 7 online is a Holy Gateway of Hope for Addiction Free Living. We work with clients online by video conference and phone with 24/7 support. Fees are affordable, and by donation, and based on income. "He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." (Philippians 1:6)
We will bring detoxed individuals into an inspirational and motivational diversity of Biblical counseling, specialized Christian life coaching, daily discipleship training (as certified teachers through the individualized Adult & Teen Challenge program and One Step group meetings - all online.
It is our hope that we can find solid and devoted born again believers who would have a sincere calling to people in addiction, and would want to serve on our volunteer board of directors, as we plan together. It takes a very special type of compassionate person to have a heart for the brokenness that we find in people who have suffered from an addiction.
