Mission and Purpose
The philosophy of The Shoulder is that alcoholism/chemical dependency is a chronic,
progressive, and potentially fatal illness which is treatable.

The Shoulder’s Mission and Purpose is to provide long-term residential and outpatient treatment
for those afflicted with the disease of alcohol and/or chemical addictions.

The Shoulder’s philosophy is that everyone deserves a chance toward recovery, regardless of
ability to pay. The Shoulder will never reject a client solely because of financial reasons.

The Shoulder will present a treatment experience which offers treatment for addiction through a
following a Christ-centered, 12-step model. The client will always be treated with respect and dignity as befits one of God’s children. Counselors will focus on recovery as a process of restoring the broken harmony of the mind, body and spirit existing in people with addictive problems.

The addictive disease is further viewed as a family disease. It is the goal of The Shoulder to
restore entire families to wholeness, not just addicted individuals. The Shoulder is convinced that
healthy families result in healthier communities.

The ultimate mission and purpose of The Shoulder is to restore addictive individuals to sobriety,
successfully balancing physical and mental health, family issues, and Christ-centered spirituality.
