About Us: The Women’s Drug and Alcohol Center for Recovery
The Providence Women’s Center for Recovery, located 45 minutes north of Atlanta, Georgia, was created to fill the huge unmet void of affordable Christian drug and alcohol rehab services for women only. Our alternative to traditional drug treatment is an outreach of Providence Ministries, Inc. of Dalton Georgia which subsidizes nearly half of the actual cost of their comprehensive 90 day addiction care.
What sets the center apart from drug rehabs is that we place Christ at the forefront of everything we do.. And because we are a Christian non-profit organization, we are driven by a high calling to help a sick and hurting world, and therefore offer our services at a cost most people can afford, 90 days for $4,900.
“Our recovery model is based around Spiritual Development with Clinical Methodologies…”
Our model of recovery services is based on two separate but related concepts which put simply, can be surmised as spiritual treatment with clinical methods. We first open the door to long term recovery by helping program participants establish a living and growing relationship with Jesus Christ, whom we know to be the ultimate authority of healing and redemption. As this relationship matures, a spiritual renewal and evolution occurs which frees our women to better receive the benefits of the clinical side of our addiction services.
Our “clinical” approach to addiction is designed to be practical and sustainable. We place a significant amount of time and energy addressing the special types of traumas and self-defeating behaviors that women seem to experience more than their male counterparts, such as guilt and self-condemnation. Through individualized counseling, peer support groups, relapse prevention training, trauma recovery exercises, and 12 step work, we achieve an effective balance of “traditional” treatment methods with “spiritual” related ones which combined produce life altering results.

We are a safe, secluded, and intimate (10 bed max) place where women can feel free to speak, listen, and heal from their shared pain and struggles with other women.
We are suited to help women suffering from many types of addictions to such things as alcohol, cocaine addiction, crack, heroin, opiates, barbiturates, marijuana (pot), crystal meth, and methamphetamine’s, and help women:
Providence Ministries, Inc. is the parent organization of the Women’s Center for Recovery at Rocky Face, and has been in the business of outreach and soul saving since 1985. The founder Roy Johnson has made it his life journey to help people struggling not just with addiction, but also hunger, poverty, and homelessness. As a part of this large organization, our Women’s Center for Recovery enjoys special privileges and access that would not normally be available to most drug and alcohol rehabs. This includes church attendance at our own church, work therapy in our own buildings, pastoral and clinical counseling on all sorts of matters, and reduced tuition cost due to donations and thrift store sales.
