This place is awful they use you as free labor there is no drug rehab here and they take 750 dollars from you when you get there so this is not a non profit this is by far one of the worst places I've been and I have been in prison so that should tell you something after I figured out the true colors of the place they wouldn't let me use the phone to call my family or give me a ride to the bus station or town I had to walk 2 hours to get a phone his "favorite " people instruct the others on the free manual labor they are forced to do I pray you reasurch this place thurouly before you throw your money away
My son was lost in addiction and it was through the influence of U Turn that he was able to find his way out. He is now a productive member of society and able to live a drug free life. Pastor is tough as are the overseers. Some people can’t handle it and speak badly of the program. I have personally seen the miracles happen. If someone is ready to do the hard work of ridding themselves of addiction and turning their lives over, this is the place. It’s not fancy, it doesn’t pamper snowflakes, but it works!
Review from Guidestar
I tried to tell my story but the website took me to a yellow pages site which was a load of crap. I hated it at first, wanted to leave every day.... But God showed me I was only here for a season and took the unimportant things from my mind. In order to grow in the lord we all have to suffer Tremendously, giving up all of our conveniences and luxuries. Only a minimal portion of self denial was required for me to break down and confess my unworthiness compared to the living GOD! My thanks to all my brothers who helped me through 1st phase. God bless everyone, especially Brian and Kendall, LOVE IB CHRIST, SAM HOLMES
I have the privilege first hand to see this ministry in action and to see lives of men and women changed forever! I serve in the ministry when I can helping with worship and technical arts, serving alongside other servant hearts, and have had the chance to listen to many testimonies of folks attending U-Turn. I also know first-hand because my son attended and U-Turn for Christ has helped him in amazing ways! The ministry can only help you if you want it to help. The Lord will speak to you only if you want to listen. We need to continue supporting and praying for this ministry, the folks attending, and for the Pastors serving these men and women battling with these strongholds. Mark 4:9
My time at U turn For Christ was life changing. A place where i became useful to the Lord and to my family which had given up on me. The daily bible study and hard work helped me become productive. I hated it at first but came to realize i was fighting against myself and the Lord
I love Uturn it is a helpful ministry that showed my how to be responsible and be held accountable for my decisions, how to get up and become a productive member of society instead of the wasted space I use to take up just going through life. I have purpose now and I am thankful that Uturn showed me how to be respectable. I have confidence today and know who I am and where I am headed all because I have a relationship with Jesus.
Finally!!! A place where I fit in. U Turn as a whole...there's nothing great about it - you clean n do chores, work detail and 3 bible studies almost every day - on top of that your held accountable for what you say or do and your surrounded by junkies 24-7 BUT I GOT ME HERE!!! I found the program/routine to be subtly helpful, almost by osmosis - it gave me a better work ethic and more. I was put in situations daily where i could apply what was taught from God's word the night before or that morning. I was given the opportunity to fail or succeed and the room to grow. I have become faithful - someone who can be trusted and depended upon and that feels better than any high. Most of all Jesus is there, God has his hand stretched out to help everyone who goes there - unfortunately I saw many just pass it by. I thank God for the imperfect men running the program, for giving me an obtainable goal and reassurance that that He can use even me.
Please check this place out before placing anyone here. Men sleep (or try to) in unairconditioned upstairs. Turnover rate is VERY high. They require 2 months (cash) pre-pay and you lose if they don't stay (very unlikely that they will). This is supposed to be a Christian rehab center. Sure there is Bible study but their practices seem very unChristian - ask those who have left. Punishment is very inconsistent - just whatever the leader wants to do for that day and depends on if you're one of their "favorites". Very little accountability. Your loved one WILL NOT make it so you're wasting your money. Ask them for a list of those who have left for a reference. I know, they'll tell you you'll just hear from a disgruntled person but that person will tell you what it's really like. Trust me, NOT a place they'll want to go. Writing this in hopes of saving others from the "experience" (it will be a bad one).
Offered as our opinion. PLEASE check it out for yourself.
