Power to Choose 12 Step Program
For men who are ready to choose a new path in life, a life lived for Christ, a 5-phase program is ready to help them. The recovery program is for men who have made unwise decisions, leading life down rough paths. When they are ready, Panama City Rescue Mission provides a supportive environment where students grow in integrity, responsibility, and commitment.
Power to Choose Recovery Dorm rooms each have two to six beds for a total capacity of 37 men, including 8 beds in the first evaluation stage. There are also 8 beds at “Crossroads” for men in transition (last phase of the recovery program) for a total of 45 men. The program is task-oriented, rather than time-oriented. So each man will complete the program at different paces, often though, it will take 12-13 months.
Evaluation Phase: 45 days, determining the probability of completing the program.
