Follow Care Goals: She knows that she is loved by our team, loved by God, and that she has choices.
Our Follow Care program exists so that once the women have left the residential housing and day program, we can continue to support them. We help the women get permanent independent housing, find a job, or follow their educational goals. We also want to keep a long-term relationship with them and continue to offer them counselling by a trauma-informed therapist.
Follow Care remains open-ended. Alumni are offered long-term staff support after leaving the Day Program to help ease their transition and avoid a relapse into a life of exploitation, poverty, homelessness, and addictions. We’re available for phone calls, to meet up when they feel lonely or triggered, bring extra food, and provide references when needed.
Follow Care is a program that all our program staff gets to be a part of. We encourage past participants to come and share in the classroom and attend meetings and events with current participants to encourage them as they begin their journey. We’re incredibly blessed to have a healthy family and community for alumni to connect with.
The Genesis Process is a systematic counselling program designed to treat the person first, and addiction second. It works by identifying and working through underlying issues that drive compulsive behaviour through the integration of Biblical precepts for personal change, proven relapse prevention techniques, cognitive therapy principles, and the latest neurochemistry research relating to human behaviour.*
We have loved seeing The Genesis Process grow over the past year, and support more women in their addiction recovery!

We have a peer-led NSM alumni group called Soul Knit for the gals to stay connected and keep the ‘family’ together. This group is all about connection. Staying in healthy community makes us stronger. It’s easier to overcome adversity and hardship when people are there to support you through it.
