Valor: Elan’s Non-Denominational Christian Program

Early recovery can be a time of seeking. A time to explore your own spirituality. A time to discover or rediscover a real, personal relationship with God. This is why Elan Recovery + Wellness has built its Valor program – a non-denominational, Christian approach to recovery that invites individuals to recognize God as their higher power.

Elan’s Valor program is open to anyone who is interested in discovering or deepening their faith as part of their recovery from addiction. You do not need to be a believer to enter the program; you simply need to be curious about the role faith can play in enduring sobriety.

Valor is open to you, even if:

  • You’re mad at God
  • You’re not sure God even exists
  • You think religion is for hypocrites
  • You’ve felt hurt or shamed in church
  • You’ve done things you think are unforgivable
  • You don’t imagine God could ever love you

We believe that building a relationship with God forms a powerful foundation for your recovery, and we know God is big enough to handle your anger, your questions, and your pain. You just have to get to know Him first, really know and understand His capacity for love, forgiveness, grace, and mercy.

The Power of Prayer, Study & Worship

The Valor program is built on a 12 Step foundation, and is available for adult and young adult populations. It includes all the clinical practices and treatment services available through our Endeavor programs, with the addition of:

  • Daily prayer
  • Reading and studying Scripture, integrated with NA and AA principles. Each Valor participant receives a copy of The Life Recovery Bible, which was created specifically for people in 12 Step addiction treatment programs.
  • Weekly church services
  • Private spiritual discussions with Elan’s masters-level Christian counselor, who also holds a certificate in preaching
  • Spiritual guidance and support from Elan’s chaplain/recovery coach
  • The freedom to express and practice your religious beliefs openly

Our staff is dedicated to integrating faith into specialized activities using proven, research-based treatment through individual and group services. We respect all backgrounds and believe that faith and connectedness in recovery can create strong and longstanding change.
