My experience at S2L was life changing because I had the chance to build on my relationship with the life giver. There were unresolved, unrevealed lies about who I am in Christ that were brought to light by great one on one counseling, and quality time with brothers, away from the hustle and bustle of life. At S2L, the tools to experience true freedom in Christ and an abundant life are taught through the four pillars: Prayer, Word Of God, Good Fellowship and Action; and also through the curriculum of the 7 principles found in 2 Peter 2. S2L Recovery is not a 12 step program, they teach students they no longer identify with their addiction but that their identity is in Christ alone. Hi, my name is Jeff and I am a child of God!

Before I came to S2L I was in the darkest place I had ever been. I had spent years of my life going to jails and other rehabs. While I was in the program I found my identity in Christ and felt at peace for the first time in my life. The staff at S2L were always there for me and helpful when I had any questions. I have finally made it over a year clean and sober and never have to call myself an addict again. Thank you S2L for all you have done for me and my family.

Praise God for S2L! I came to this place with absolutely no hope and honestly no desire to live. This place is where I found Christ, My Identity, My Purpose, and My Calling in life! It’s where I became not only a man, but a MAN OF GOD! The staff is one of a kind and the fact that they have all been through addiction themselves really resonated with me. The presence of God is undeniably felt the second you step foot in this place. It has not only changed my life, but my entire family’s lives. This is hands down the best recovery facility in the country!

I struggled for over 16 years with addiction! I had tried other programs and never found the freedom that I have today until I found myself at spring 2 life ministries. Their alignment with the Holy Spirit is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. If you struggle with idols in any way please consider this program. It saved my life and so much more. I’m so grateful for Gods grace and mercy!! God is good! Thank you spring 2 life and for allowing God to use your place as a safe place for men to build a firm foundation and sanctify themselves in our Lord, Jesus Christ!!

This ministry is a gem. I’ve worked in this field for six years and am a former addict myself. I’ve also been a board member for other recovery places and the excellence of how S2L is operated by its executive team and staff far surpasses anything I’ve seen. If you’re looking for a trustworthy addiction recovery place to come to or send a loved one. This place is it. Especially if you’re tired of traditional recovery methodologies and desire real freedom from addiction through Christ.

S2L Recovery is unique in the field of addiction. The program teaches that complete freedom from addiction is possible with a focused identity in Jesus Christ rather than the problems and consequences of a life of addiction. Lives are being transformed permanently. The men report this “brotherhood” fellowship as being a game changer-the love they have for one another is heart changing and life altering. They say they have never experienced a love like this anywhere else. God bless S2L Recovery!! I love you guys!!

This place is amazing! I’ve been to several places in Tennessee and there really is something different about S2L. Great staff that’s truly dedicated to your recovery and continues to care even after you finish the program. I came here initially only because I wanted to go somewhere that wasn’t a twelve step program, not because of a desire to grow closer to god. But gods presence can’t be denied here, and once I accepted him into my life again I quickly understood that my lack of a relationship with Christ was why I was failing in my previous attempts to stay sober. I’m sober today only because of that relationship and this place. For the first time it’s not a struggle to stay clean, I’m not white knuckling it every day...I’m truly free!!

There is a lot I can say about this place, but the most important thing to say is that this place saves lives. Honestly, looking back I have had my doubts if I was gonna make it to 30. Not just because of the way I was living, but also because i was just tired of life and the so called living I was doing. I hoped quite often that I would just die. It’s amazing how God, this place and the staff here has changed me. It’s through them and my brothers in the program that I have learned about God and started to seek a relationship with Him. I have learned its through Him that we are made new creations and it is He who breaks our chains. Its through Him we have true freedom. He is my hope. He gives me peace. The changes that I have seen in others here are nothing short of a miracle. I pray that more people come to find freedom like I have found and that they seek God so there their chains of addiction may be broken.

S2L is a place where you can recover your identity as a person and that identity is only given by Christ. Through the staff members who show unconditional love, compassion and that burden of wanting to help the most needy who suffer from this disease of drugs and alcohol I recommend this place to anyone who wants to be restored! I say it from my personal experience. There is hope!

I'm writing this as a mother of a former addict. Without S2L, I wouldn't be able to say former. I can honestly say without them ,and the Lord, I wouldn't have my precious son! Never give up on your child and if you need need help ask the Lord and S2L!

If you are tired of struggling from addiction and are looking for a life changing experience. S2L is the place to be!!!!! The facility is great and peaceful. The staff is amazing!!!! Not only are they amazing they all have suffered from substance abuse and have done what it takes to defeat it. They are normal people just like me that have felt the pain and agony that comes from the lifestyle of addiction. This place is truly a gift sent from God. His presence definitely flows through this place. It has saved my life. It has also restored to me a sense of purpose, peace, and Freedom. I was at a point in my life where I was broken, lost, homeless, and I felt like there was no way out. Then I was introduced to S 2 L. Though I was financially strained from drug addiction. They did all that they could to make sure that my needs were taken care of. It was there I learn that my life wasn't over and that I could beat this giant call drug addiction. I came only to get clean but ended up leaving with a solid relationship with God. I also left knowing the meaning of true love. Theres a lot of love at that place. Not only did I learn about addiction. I learned about Christ and that with God's help I could be set free from the bondage of substance abuse. My relationship with my family has also been restored. I'm also a better father, son, and brother. I am a better man. I have also met a group of guys from different backgrounds, ethnicities and walks of life that i will never forget and they will always be a part of my life. S2L is not just a charity or organization to me its a family, A brotherhood, and a way of life. While i was at S2L I experenced things that were totally outside of the box for me. I even went whitewater rafting. They showed me that life and having a good time is more than gettting high. I could go on forever but am greatful for this place. S2L TEACHES MEN HOW TO BE MEN OF GOD AND HOW TO USE THE TOOLS THAT GOD HAS GIVING US TO DEFEAT NOT ONLY ADDICTION BUT TO DEFEAT ANY GIANT THAT YOU MAY FACE IN LIFE.

S2l changed me forever. I went in broken and beaten down from a 10 year addiction to cocaine and opiates. I had no hope for myself, no aspirations in life, and no faith in God. Through my 83 days at S2l I found all 3 of these things changed. I first discovered that Jesus Christ is my hope, God is real, And my life aspirations have become to show others the love God has for them. No matter what I went through, the staff was there to lift me up and teach me how to transform a broken life, into a powerful testimony for God. If you want to be free S2l is where to break your chains off for good.

Our journey in Recovery lead us to a very Clinical approach for our son. Although having merit, it did not leave us with the desired, lasting results. Spring 2 Life was the reattachment of our son to His identity in Christ. The men really bonded as the teaching brought out the needed path for true freedom! Once an Addict always an Addict, No Way! Our son bought his first house this past year and is happy and whole. Thank you Jesus and Thank you Spring 2 Life. Ron

S2L Recovery is where my life began. I went in as a 25 year addict of opiates and alcohoI and left with a completely new identity. From day one, I felt like the staff and other students not only accepted me, but cared for me. The facility is located on a beautiful 10 acres on the top of a mountain! While this is great, what is greater was what I was taught there. I learned about how God loves every person He has created and our purpose is to have a personal relationship with Him. I was released from the shame and guilt I felt for all the mistakes I had made, and that through His grace, mercy and love I was forgiven. I felt an empowerment that I could, through Him, conquer the desire to use drugs and alcohol. Over the next 2 months that is exactly what happened. By listing to other's teachings, through reading His word (Bible) and through communicating with Him through prayer I not only lost my desire to do drugs and drink, but he showed me His truths which allowed me to truly examine myself for the first time. Things like lack of patience, anxiety, anger, pride, and not loving others were brought to my attention like never before and I asked Him to change me. I began to experience peace, less pride and more love towards others. 1 year removed from S2L, I have an unwavering faith in God and a true desire to follow Jesus daily. Looking back on the days of my addiction I now realize that God was continuously calling me to him, but I was completely unaware of his presence. S2L Recovery opened my eyes and my heart to the Truth, which allowed me to see what I never could before. I now identity myself as a Christ following Child of God and certainly NOT as an addict!! God bless you if you reading this a please give S2L a call if you or anyone you love is struggling. There is not only freedom from addiction through Christ, but a future that is far greater than you can imagine!

My experience at S2L saved my life. Because the experience at S2L saved my life it is easy for me to say it is one of the best non profits that exists today. Don’t just take one person’s word for it, instead look at the success rate of S2L compared to other recovery institutions: the national average is 12% where S2L touts a 60% success rate. Our nation is facing an epidemic of opioid addiction and in the midst of such a time as this S2L uses a solution that produces not only sobriety but a way to live with joy, love, hope, kindness, and peace. Their method is not a new one, but one that people tend to shy away from. Simply put they teach about the saving, restoring, eternal love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. They teach that belief and salvation through Jesus Christ will not only put that addiction in the rear view mirror, that through the power of Christ in our lives a whole new way of living with peace and hope is possible. Help S2L in their pursuit of battling this national epidemic and breaking the chains of addiction or people all over this country!

After eight months spent at three different rehabs, over a three year period, I somehow ended up at S2L. The people at S2L helped me realize that I wasn't a bad person for the things I did and that the real problem I had for so many years, was that I was trying to fill the void in my life with pleasures of this world. S2L helped guide me in the right direction and what I believe, helped save my life. 13 year opiate user and 4 year iv heroin user... Today, I'm not an addict... You don't have to live your struggling to not get high, if you're spending your time struggling to follow God and do what's right. S2L offers insight to truth I'd never heard before. The recovery coaches really invest time into the clients that are brought to S2L and you won't find a more genuine staff that truly cares about the people coming in. It is truly an amazing experience where you can enjoy good fellowship and become the man that God made you to be. I count myself blessed to have met the men there and received real treatment

S2L is absolutely life changing! Learning that addiction is merely a symptom and doesn't have to be life long is a game changer! Truly meeting Jesus and experiencing his love through the staff and classes will set you free from the bondage of any addiction. It's a choice you will never regret! Galatians 5:1
