Building Faith –
Going blind and in the throes of addiction to drugs and alcohol, Theroux needed support. At our Base Camp shelter, he began his recovery journey and started helping out around the shelter.
He then entered the Mission’s Ascent Program and continued his recovery journey. He began taking care of his diabetes and eye problems, and also got the support he needed to address drug and alcohol issues.
The Ascent program uses the Genesis Process, an evidence-based relapse prevention program, for substance use and other self-destructive behaviors. It combines biblical teachings with evidence-based clinical practices. This program helped Theroux grow in his faith and in his recovery.
Today Theroux’s medical conditions have greatly improved. He is in recovery and is growing everyday. He is currently an Ascent Program Intern and works at Base Camp helping others.
His goals are to continue to grow in his relationship with God and follow where He leads.
“The Mission changed my life and put me on the path I should be following. I was blind physically and mentally. Now I see.”Theroux
