Abstract

Abstract: No descriptions of faith-based recovery programs (FBRPs) that include explicit religious content and activities were found searching 2004-2010 electronic databases. This article describes an underdocumented FBRP: an evangelical Christian faith-based recovery home (FBRH) known as The Potter's House Restoration Ministries, to increase awareness about a FBRP that incorporates explicitly religious components, and reiterates the call for better description of FBRPs so that replication and evaluation of outcomes are possible.
